For years, photographer Anne-Catherine Chevalier has been intrigued by the special connection mothers have with their daughters.
Through her photographs, 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 daughter 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.
With an essay by psychoanalyst Hendrika C. Freud.
