A Danish woman named Camilla works with a physical therapist during a weekly session in December 2014. Camilla has muscular dystrophy, and the exercises aim to stretch the muscles, release them from tension and delay the progress of the disease.
Camilla feeds her twins, Agnes and Esther. As much as Camilla might like to lift her babies, she can't.

Camilla gets on her knees to spend time with her twins. It's the only way she can hug them. "I saw, in one gesture, both struggle and sweetness," photographer Claudia Gori said. "That picture touches me in a very intimate way."
"All the struggles are nothing compared to (Camilla's) positive spirit," Gori said.
