1988, with daughter Lola

"Margriet Smulders’ Family pictures, made in the late eighties and early nineties, reflect her own feelings of motherhood. They hint at unexpressed emotions and underlying issues that force us to look at our own families, the ones where we came from and the ones we created. ..." (from 'Gentle forces, The family pictures of Margriet Smulders' by Brigitte Lardinois. Book Margriet Smulders 2010)
