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 daughters. 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's hiding behind the façade? What conscious and unconscious feelings do mother and daughter harbour for each other in their heart of hearts?

This powerful series of photographs was shortlisted for the prestigious Taylor Wessing Photographic Portrait Prize, awarded by the National Portrait Gallery in London.

With a lengthy essay by psychoanalyst Hendrika C. Freud, author of the bestseller Electra vs Oedipus: The Drama of the Mother-Daughter Relationship.

Text in English, French and Dutch.
