The "Unspoken Conversations" Between Mothers and Daughters: Photographs by Rania Matar

Nada and Kristy, Beirut Lebanon, 2014 by Rania Matar

Rania Matar began pursuing photography because she wanted to capture better photographs of her children. But a few photo classes led to a new career and passion for the field. Her work has continued to be influenced by her role as a mother and her projects have evolved with the aging of her children and herself.

In her recent series, "Unspoken Conversations", Matar photographs mother-daughter pairs both in the US and in Lebanon, where she was born. Many of the images portray the pair standing side-by-side gazing at the camera. The quiet and intense looks invite the viewer to look for the similarities and differences between the two women. We aren't looking in on a candid interaction between the two, but still beyond those surface details one can begin to imagine the bonds that connect these women in their mother-daughter relationship.
