Who said that the young rule the internet? 89 years old Japanese grandma, Kimiko Nishimito, actually never knew she loved photography and that she was pretty good at it until the age of 72. Her son was teaching a class about photography and she decided to join in and listen. From that moment on, she found out not only that she loves to take pictures and goof around, but that she actually handles the camera better than most. Ever since, she has been taking hilarious selfies that won the internet and even got her a solo exhibition at a museum in her home town of Kumamoto.
In recent years, mothers have tried to break the wall of nursing publicly. Sharing breastfeeding selfies and stories all over social media. Yet, they actually are not the first.
If you scroll down, you'll see photos taken in America in the late 19th and early 20th century. What do they display? Proud new mothers breastfeeding their children in front of the camera. Let's not forget that cameras were no joke back in the day. It was not so easy to just snap a in the moment pic and up load it to social media. It was planned, it was posed and it sparked a fad Victorian mothers using the new technology to pose for portraits while nursing their newborns.
While wealthy families in the UK and the rest of Europe hired wet nurses, American mothers at the time were proponents of the 'breast is best' approach, it seems. Breastfeeding was a trend that died out in the 1940s with the invention of formula, which doctors encouraged.
