The article discusses several concepts and theories about mothers and daughters with emphasis on how the concept of mothers and daughters is reflected in photography. The author cites a collection of photographs featuring mothers and daughters in various settings and emotional state. On the other hand, the author argues that there is an inherent limitation as regards the capability of photographs to convey the essence of motherhood and being a daughter. He argues that not even portraits could capture the mother and daughter spirit.
