It hasn’t been a problem getting pregnant over the years. Staying pregnant, however, has been riddled with bodily dysfunctionality for Janemaria.

Professional insemination and pharmaceutical aid did not change the circumstance that the fetus never transcended 12-weeks. Every time, her body would reject the pregnancy, and in its place, grief would grow.

«Dysfertil» is Janemaria’s journey towards acceptance, and in the book she turns herself inside out to show us the spectrum of hope and despair.

When Janemaria started working on this project she was still trying to become a mother. «Dysfertil» has been a long time coming.

The white, transparent pages of «Dysfertil» are held together with a glue-binding making the book fragile, but strong. The softcover book comes in a closed graphite cardboard slipcase. The closed box signifies both loss and strength.

Graphite cardboard box – closed slipcase
70 pages of b/w and colour photography
French folded pages
Printed on Opakal, 60 gr.
Handmade by the artist in an edition of 72 copies only. All copies are signed and numbered by the artist.

«Dysfertil» was shortlisted for the Encontros da Imagem photobook award in 2020.
