Porn Moms by Mary Beth Koeth

In Mary Beth Koeth’s latest series, women employed in the adult film industry share their experiences of balancing motherhood and work.

In 2017, photographer Mary Beth Koeth rented a car and drove from New York City to Edison, New Jersey, for the erotic arts convention Exxxotica Expo. Her goal was to meet mothers working in the adult film industry, to try and answer some of the questions she had about their lives. How do they balance motherhood with their work? How are they treated at school gatherings?

Transylvania Hay Country by Rena Effendi

renaeffendi01The whole Borca family, from Breb, puts finishing touches on one of the 40 haystacks it makes each summer.

renaeffendi02More sheep used to graze in the highest mountain pastures, but an increasing number of flocks now occupy fields near the villages. Some shepherds say that sheep in the lowland meadows are less beautiful, perhaps because there’s less rain than in the surrounding highlands to wash them off.

renaeffendi03Corn is shelled, then fed to the cattle. Ion Petric and his wife, Maria Vraja, who live in Breb, help out their neighbors’ daughter, seven-year-old Adriana Țânțaş. Transylvanian family life and village life remain intimately bound up with the needs and services of farm animals.

renaeffendi04Cousins Anuța and Magdalena Mesaroș, 17, are on their way to a wedding in Sat Șugatăg, Maramureș.

renaeffendi05Every member of a Transylvanian family plays a part in the farming life. Eight-year-old Anuța, from Bogdan Vodă in the north, helps with the cows and sheep.

renaeffendi06Mothers and grandmothers like Maria Pop, from Cornești, spinning raw wool at home, devote hundreds of hours a year to making traditional embroidered clothes for their families.
