Photographer Carolyn Jones has focused her frank and revealing lens on the women in some thirty American families and listened to stories told through laughter and tears. A South Dakota grandmother describes the experience of carrying her daughter's twins in her own womb. A still-grieving mother who lost her daughter in the terrorist bombing aboard Pan Am flight 103 talks of the scholarship she set up in her daughter's name. A Connecticut woman tells of traveling to Hungary to adopt two little girls and returning home with a family of five orphaned children. A WNBA star points proudly to the grandmother who taught her that women can do anything. With each portrait and narrative, The Family of Women celebrates the complicated, infuriating, fascinating, and everlasting bond that exists among women who, literally or figuratively, have given birth to one another.
