To tighten her family ties, Bavarian photographer Nina Röder set out to bring three generations of women- herself, her mother, and her grandmother- together for a fun game of dress up. But this game was more than just donning vintage attire, they invoked specific memories from her mother’s youth, in the house she grew up in, wearing her actual clothing. From an awful prom date who couldn’t dance and brought carnations, which is the flower associated with graves in Germany, to her first time putting on make-up, all 3 ladies got to re-live these personal moments etched in the mother’s memory. She calls the series Mutter Schuhe (Mother’s Shoes).

Röder explains:

The interest in my mother’s youth is based on the fact that I wanted to get to know my mother better and maybe to learn indirectly more about myself. I wanted to see her not only as my mother – but as a woman who had a life before me. A life full of hopes, first loves, dreams and ideas.
