The Tender Years
The Tender Years is a project exploring the relationship between my mother and her two youngest daughters. When we think of motherhood, we often think of babies and toddlerhood. I wanted to capture motherhood when the children are no longer helpless, but are not quite yet self-sufficient. Here, my sisters are growing quickly towards the teenage years and increasing independence, but are still reliant on and closely bound to their mother.
