Fascinating Long Lost Photos of Mothers With Their Children

Ken Heymen, a famous photographer, recently found a long lost box of photos. He received a call from the office of his former agent saying they were closing their storage facility and had found many of Heyman’s old documents.

One of the things that they discovered was a box with the word “Mothers” written on it. In it was a collection of Heyman’s long-lost photographs that he took of mothers and their children. The photos had been hidden for 50 years.

He shot many of the photographs for a book called Family that Heyman created with anthropologist Margaret Mead in 1965.The book was nominated for a Pulitzer Prize the same year.

Have you called your mom lately?
