Message for my daughter is a collection of 30 images of 9-10 year-old
girls draped in flowers with a significant meaning meant just for them. They represent the vulnerability of young girls based on the messages that their mothers give them.
create the work I gathered participants for the project, asked their
mothers for five words that describe their daughter, then chose the
flower that had similar meaning based on a Victorian flower dictionary and the book, The meaning ofFlowers by Vanessa Diffenbaugh.
bought and made fresh flower crowns and scarves for the girls to wear
along with vintage Victorian dresses from my collection.
photographs represent the vulnerability of a young girls spirit. I am
seeking to spread a positive message to mothers and their daughters and share the beautiful spirit within them through flowers.
