Mother and Daughter Portraits That Look Nearly Identical

haLrLgL

Mother + Daughter is an ongoing series of portraits by North Carolina-based photographer Carra Sykes. Each diptych features one portrait of Sykes and one portrait of her mother, with both women wearing the same clothes and holding the same pose.

Sykes said the project was inspired by her uncle constantly joking with her mom and asking her if she’s wearing 25-year-old Carra’s clothing. The two women share many similar features, and upon first glance, the side-by-side photographs may even look like two photographs of the same person at different points in life.

    Really fun idea. Mom was a great sport about having her photos taken for this.

    Must be scary knowing what you will look like in 30 years time.

    Mom’s probably thinking, “OK honey, whatever you say. But why am I wearing a motorcycle helmet in the bathroom?” Seriously, great theme, great Mom, great daughter.

    I don’t want to be uncharitable, so I’ll shut up.

    it would be great just knowing you would be alive in 30 years, and I think the older women are beautiful
