"Filiation" - The parental link
This series of photos pays homage to a woman; my mother. It is a way of speaking of the intimity which exists between a mother and her daughter. The transmission of education, moral and social values and the acceptance of one's body and one's desires may be expressed by filiation; that singular mother/daughter link. It can be unsettling to see a mature woman, a mother, assuming sensual poses in erotic apparel..........and therein lie the questions which we ask about the human body, its sexuality and its ephemerality. These photos are an affirmation of the body and of a femininity which capture eroticism to establish themselves in the woman who accepts and takes responsibility for her body in a society which places emphasis on dictates and taboos.
