Feed the Baby Project
Where do mothers feed their babies? Everywhere.
Feed the Baby Project portrays a most basic act of motherhood – babies feeding at the breast – in authentic settings from real mothers’ lives. The project documents mothers from diverse backgrounds nourishing their babies in predominantly public settings, to help shift the cultural perception of breastfeeding from noteworthy to normal.
Feed the Baby Project is an on-going personal project by Tiffany Brown Anderson. The work is born out of an experience the photographer had while breastfeeding her second son when he was only a few weeks old. The encounter inspired Brown Anderson to want to create a more accepting and supportive culture for all mothers, no matter how or where they choose to feed their baby. With this project, Brown Anderson captures the physical and emotional bond that mothers and their children experience while breastfeeding, and she includes herself and her family in the collection. These photographs are a celebration of all mothers breastfeeding, covered or uncovered, in public or private spaces.
Nik Wallenda’s Skywalk
On June 23, 2013, Nik Wallenda set a world record crossing the Little Colorado River gorge in the Grand Canyon on a 1,300-foot-long wire, 1,500 feet above the Little Colorado River. His network partners in the televised live event, Discovery Channel, allowed Nik to undertake the walk in the Wallenda family tradition, completely untethered, and broke new ground as a network, broadcasting the event live in 183 countries.
At a height of 1,500 ft above the Little Colorado River, Nik faced the challenges of wind gusts measured at 48 miles per hour, optical illusions of the canyon walls, and a dusty and precariously moving cable.
After nearly 23 minutes on the cable and realizing the end was in sight, he began to thank those that had made the walk possible, before kneeling to the cable, saluting his fans, and sprinting in the final distance to the waiting arms of family and friends. Through television and other media outlets, the event reached an audience of 23 million in the U.S., and millions more worldwide, setting viewing and social media records.
Tiffany Brown Anderson was the exclusive still photographer on the ground for the Discovery Channel.

Return of the Hunt
The first public hunt of Yellowstone National Park buffalo in 15 years opened Nov. 15, 2005 on the borders of North America’s first national park in Montana. Controversy over population control, winter range and the issue of the disease brucellosis surround management of the animals, which the hunt is a result. The Yellowstone herd is said to be the only remaining herd with continuously wild ancestry descended from the once more than 50 million buffalo that roamed the Great Plains.
This essay is part of a long term personal project I’ve been working on since the winter of 1997.
