What is a great way to get closer to your mother? Dressing like her may be the answer. Bavarian photographer Nina Röder photographed herself, her mother and her grandmother in the same dress. The developed images clearly show three generations of women in the foreground of three very different stories.
Röder calls it Mutter Schuhe (Mother’s Shoes) and explains, “The interest in my mother’s youth is based on the fact that I wanted to get to know my mother better and maybe to learn indirectly more about myself. I wanted to see her not only as my mother – but as a woman who had a life before me. A life full of hopes, first loves, dreams and ideas.”
