"Generation" is a photography series created by German photographer and artist Frauke Theilking to demonstrate the differences and similarities between generations. Theilking focused on mother/daughter and father/son pairs, staging them with no distractions from clothing or background.

While many people want to separate themselves as much as possible from their parents, whether by changing appearance or moving away, Theilking’s photos are a reminder that we can never fully escape familial bonds. It’s easy to forget that our parents were once young too, but seeing parent and child side-by-side is simultaneously a peek into the future and a look into the past.
