Mother/Daughter ‹ Marcia Lloyd Photography

Mother/Daughter

I have been photographing a mother and her two teenage daughters for four years--2011, 2012, 2014, and 2016--once a year, beginning when Rachel, the older sister, was 19 and Natalie, the younger one, was 11. I wanted to explore the complex developmental challenges facing all of them at this time of their lives: the need for both redefining their relationship and reinventing their individual identities as well as the sense of alienation that sometimes is endemic to this process. The primary questions for the girls are "Who am I apart from my mother, apart from my sister, in my new identity as a woman? Where do I belong?" Their mother is faced with similar questions: "Who am I apart from my children? Who will I be when the nest is empty? With my children in their prime and me in in middle age, who am I as a woman?"
