These photographs show mothers and daughters, posed against a neutral background looking directly at its viewer.

Some of the mothers are of middle age while some are still teenagers but what they have in common is that they all became mothers when they were seventeen years old or younger.

They all stand proudly with or beside their child, whether with a baby or a full-grown woman.

In each image, we sense the closeness between mother and daughter and their determination to defy the prejudice of society and the willingness to find their spot to grow alongside their child. The family resemblance is evident, not only in their faces but in their attitude and strong gaze.
