Mothers & Daughters, Lannoo, November 2011
For years, photographer Anne-Catherine Chevalier has been intrigued by the special connection mothers have with their daughters. In dozens of photographs featuring several generations of women, she goes in search of the message about femininity that a mother passes on to her daughter.
Her pictures are very telling, which makes them interesting and even insidious records that often show more than the subject would care to reveal. What conscious and unconscious feelings do mother and daughters harbour for each other in their heart of hearts?
This powerful series of photographs was selected for the prestigious Taylor Wessing Photographic Portrait Prize, awarded by the National Portrait Gallery in London.
The book features about 50 photographs and a lengthy essay by psychoanalyst Iki Freud.
