Book Description 
  
An aperture classic that sold over 40,000 copies in previous editions. 
  
 
  
In this extraordinary volume, Mothers & Daughters: An Exploration in Photographs with essays by Tillie Olsen and Estelle Jussim, the most basic and the most mysterious of relationships -- as experienced in contemporary America -- is explored in all of its variety, nuance, and ambivalence. 
  
 
  
Nearly ninety photographers contributed penetrating images of mothers and their daughters -- women of every shape, hue, and social station. The result is an emotional mosaic of depth and detail and also a pioneering accomplishment in the history of photography. 
  
 
  
The photographers are joined by leading women writers and poets offering a kaleidoscopic gathering of insights and observations.
