Julia Fullerton-Batten: Mothers and Daughters series
Julia FULLERTON-BATTEN’s series Mothers and Daughters is a story about the complex and fluctuating nature of the mother-daughter relationship. The series sheds light onto a very personal side of Julia, since her own relationship with her mother was a major source of inspiration for the series.
Each and every carefully composed scene – always featuring real mother and daughter pairings – documents a different aspect of the relationship: oscillating between tension and empathy, concern and support, coldness and love, pride and jealousy, past and future.
The photographer illustrates how the mother-daughter relationship is subject to running through different phases and continues to develop throughout the life cycle. The domestic scenes set in suburban America may appear superficial on the outset, but there are psychological truths to be found beneath the surface.
