Description

Generations of Women

A pearl of wisdom passed along from mother to daughter can be far more valuable and often more lasting than any heirloom treasure. Generations of Women captures the gems that women bequeath each other generation after generation: knowledge from experience; strength from perseverance; courage; love; and determination. With a candid introduction by Jamaica Kincaid, this newest celebration of inheritance by Mariana Cook follows the success of her Fathers and Daughters and Mothers and Sons. Spanning as many as five generations, Cook turns her camera to women of all backgrounds and perspectives. Here mothers and daughters speak from every stage of life, sharing their own stories in their own voices -- each lluminated by Cook's graceful portraits. The result is a frank and uplifting record of women's lives, the legacies they share, and the differences that shape who they are. Through photographs and dialogues, Generations of Women reveals the unbreakable bonds that hold the women of a family together.
