Thank you for showing interest in participating in my Mothers and Daughters photography project. The aim of the project is to try and capture something of the nature of the relationship that exists between a mother and her daughter(s).
The approach I would like to take is to photograph you in a context which shows something of your relationship and how you enjoy interacting together – what it means to you to be mother and daughter(s) and how your closeness and togetherness show themselves. That could be an activity you do together, just the way you watch a favourite television programme, going shopping, sitting together, chatting – whatever it is. Your ideas as to what this should be are vital to the project. And we can try more than one idea – we need to end up with something you feel is ‘right’.
I’m not looking to take ‘family photos’ but images of you as people that have some presence and meaning, both to you and to the viewers of the images – they are intended as an art project. It is possible that you may not ‘like’ the final photo that I select for the project (but of course I hope you will), but I hope you will understand and agree with why it was chosen. The final images need to work as a series.
If you would still like to participate, could you please just answer the following questions for me. Thank you.
