Ryoko Suzuki. Rituko-takumi from the series Mama Doll, 2004.

Description:
My series, Mama Doll focuses on the Japanese Family system. Many Japanese fathers have little interest in their families and spend a lot of time outside the home. This means that Japanese mothers have a lot of power within the home and they use it to control and discipline their children.
I used photographs of real families for the Mama Doll series. I slightly changed the hair and shoulder line only, but I did not change the facial features at all. It is very interesting to see how similar the mothers, daughters and sons are, I was very surprised.
