Generation Gaps.

Frauke Thielking is a German photographer who established differences and similirties amongst generations through photographs. He titled this series of work, “Generation” and his primary focus was mother/daughter and father/son pairs. He was sure to have no distractions, so no clothing or excessive color, just simplicity. How truly alike are parent and child? Do you resemble your parent, and or child?

By looking at the pictures there are evident age gaps, but the strong similarities still remain. Even though the photos of are parent and child, it appears to be the same person, just at different ages in their life. So, maybe you and your parents are more alike than you have previously thought. Thielking photos are proof that, no matter what, we can never fully escape generation bonds.
