A Mother & Daughter Lookalike Photo Project by Carra Sykes

August 6, 2013

Christopher Jobson







Mother + Daughter is an ongoing portrait project by artist Carra Sykes who dresses and poses identically to her mother in various photographs. Sykes was looking for a way to lift her spirits while struggling with a long job hunt and was struck by her mom’s penchant for occasionally raiding her Goodwill donation bags to wear her old clothes. While the photos are not meant to be perfectly identical in composition or form, Sykes says the project has become an interesting study of their relationship and physical traits. You can follow the series over on Flickr. For similar projects check out the work of Irina Werning. (via My Modern Met, DesignTAXI)
