Premature Babies – Moving portraits of newborns and what they have become

Quebecker photographer Red Méthot, aka RedM has created a series of moving portraits of premature children, paralleling newborns and what they have become. By photographing these children holding in their hands a picture taken at the time of their birth, RedM illustrates in a single image the strength and the road traveled by these people who often had a difficult journey in early life.
