"It was an unusual thing to have our pictures taken so formally. Our family tends to be a little haphazard on the outside. Formality is not one of our strong points. On the inside, however, I think we have a strength that will not easily break. Families are like that, don't you think? Mad, but strong."

"I wanted to document the feminine influence in my family, how strong, artistic, and determined we are as people. Throughout my life we have always shared our experiences and our wardrobes. I think this image captures all of that."

"We are newly arrived immigrant family from China. We are enjoying being a part of Australia's multicultural society. My family here is a female-dominated kingdom. The best thing is that we can have dress-up parties any time we want, and we can try any girly things we like. At the same time, we worry when the weeds grow quickly after each rain, and we have difficulty with broken sliding doors. These are the joys and pains of an all-female family. We share all of these things together. My daughters rely on my support, but their small hands and beautiful smiles bring me comfort. I raise them, but they perfect my inner spiritual world. We need each other and as they say in fairytales, 'they lead a happy life for ever.'"

My favorite thing about our family is that even though all of us are fiercely individual and our personalities diversely different, when one of us is in need, we all pull together to do what we can to help one another and become one family."

"The three generations of women in our family span almost an entire century, with my mother being born in 1927 during the Great Depression and my daughters being born at the turn of the millennium. The spacing between our generations is perhaps wider than average, and this allows our family great insights into how life, and more specifically, the lives of women, have altered so dramatically over time."
