With this book, Magnum photographer Christopher Anderson, renowned for his documentary work from conflict zones all over the world, presents a very personal body of work: "These photographs are an organic response to an experience that is at the same time the most unique and the most universal of experiences: the birth of a child. . . . Through my son, my role as the son took on new meaning and my senses were hypertuned to the evidence of my own life passing."
