Capturing relationships in a natural way is a great challenge for photographers. You know, when you try to take a photo in a way that everyone looks just like they are completely unaware of your presence. It’s like you were not there, they have no idea that you are registering moments, reactions and feelings.
Feelings was what we were looking for in a recent Mission: Mother and Daughter. How do you show the connection, friendship and bond between a mother and her daughter?
Foapers who joined the Mission showed beautiful photos of mothers and daughters from all over the world. Feelings, emotions, intimacy. As outsiders, we’re invited to step in and take part in their precious moments. Many of the participants are fathers or friends and relatives to the moms and daughters portrayed. That’s probably why they could register magical moments so naturally!
We’re delighted to present the the Mission Finalists. Enjoy!
