Marta believes that parenting belongs to one of the most important topics brought up between two loving each other people. Homosexual parenting is even more complicated. Not only to consider all important and necessary arrangements but most importantly taking into account tolerance within the society. Marta’s was to create a clear and positive image of random homosexual families to show off as well as prove all values that homosexual family can deliver to raise healthy and happy children.

Marta Kochanek: “Real passion creates all shapes and colours. Fashion photography is an insidious profession. In art, it is what sex-appeal is to love. To me it is an explosion of passion, communication and photography that tells a story. Having the opportunity now, I would like to share some of my photographs I was recently commissioned to take. Body as an object is beautiful so I followed its beauty taking the most of the journey.”
