Sujata Tibrewala was contacted by a young bride who was three months into her pregnancy. She wanted her portrait to be done in black and white in a sketchy artistic style, in time before her pregnancy started showing up. This request reminded Sujata of her own experience as a mother, the feelings she had about loosing control of her own body, a price any woman pays to become a mother!! And she took it upon herself to depict this lady in all truthfulness to mark her transition into motherhood, and to celebrate her girl body, which is now turning into a woman's.
