Madre e Figlie

Another image from the Alyssa shoot several days ago. Pictured from left to right are 8 year-old Alyssa, mother Lynn and 6 year old Alexa. The style is a modest attempt at a combination of early to mid-20th century documentary photojournalism (think Dorthea Lange and the WPA) and classic European oil painting composition.

The title arguably is a bit pretentious–it’s Italian for “Mother and Daughters”–but it just seemed to fit the technique. This image has been added to Alyssa’s Gallery.
