Generations of Women: In Their Own Words
Chronicle Books, 1998 - Photography - 108 pages
Through portraits and interviews, photographer Mariana Cook explores the unbreakable bonds that hold the women of a family together. She turns her camera to women of all backgrounds and perspectives - mothers and daughters of hardworking families, women who face adversity, women born into prosperity and opportunity, mavericks and feminists, famed poets and chefs, engineers, politicians, and schoolteachers. Spanning as many as five generations, they share their stories in their own words. At turns supportive, competitive, tumultuous, and funny, these women and their relationships are all the more compelling for their diversity.
