Milky Way is a series of pictures of Vincent Ferrané’s (b. 1974, France) wife and child during breastfeeding.
Photography: Vincent Ferrané

The aesthetic aspect is determined by the feeding behaviour which imposes its geometry on bodies and on space they occupy. These images contain familiar echoes of classic icons but adorn themselves with modern elements. From these everyday moments, seized with harshness, without bitterness, emerges the force of exchanges between two beings and the milk becomes, as in the Greek legend of the Milky Way, the vector of a world under construction.
