MOTHER AND CHILD
ASSOULINE Photographer Claiborne Swanson Frank, a former assistant to Anna Wintour, recently had her second child. In this beautiful, thought-provoking book, she explores the meaning of modern motherhood in a collection of portraits spanning 70 famous mother-and-child relationships. And matriarch is certainly not the only role these women play. Within these pages are first ladies, fashion tycoons, business leaders and bestselling authors. There’s Aerin Lauder and her mother, Jo Carole; Carolina Herrera and her four daughters; a poolside Lauren Santo Domingo with her children, Beatrice and Nicolas; and Yaya DaCosta and son Sankara. Most notably, Swanson Frank photographs and interviews the four generations of Bush women at their home in Kennebunkport, Maine, months before Barbara Bush passed away.
