Family Photos

What is it like to have many generations of women in your family? Do you get on well, have similar traits and mannerisms, look like each other? Or are there real differences in your appearances and the way you behave?

As part of our exploration of maternal lineage, we have been working with families with 4 or more generations of women. Carrying out group interviews and taking portrait photographs. Often with fascinating insights into the way patterns emege and transform across the generations. This material will feed into our exhibition in 2015.

We are also collecting photos from families across the UK with 3 or more generations of women. (Names given are from left to right, back row and then front row. D indicates daughter, M - Mother, G - Grandmother, GG - Great grandmother, GGG Great, great grandmother, S - Sister, A - Aunt)

If you would like to add your family photo, we'd love to hear from you. Please contact Pippa @ Onestory
