Ugne Henriko photographer from Vilnius, Lithuania, works in the genre of fashion digital photography.


This project explores a relationship between my mother and me. Through genetic and characteristic similarities I am trying to look into the general idea of being a copy of somebody else. To achieve this I have recreated my mother’s old photographs with myself in them, as a reflection of her. My aim is not only to show how much we look alike: I am trying to observe what is similar and what is different between two generations.

All of the images on the left side are my mother’s, taken approximately in 1975 and images on the right side are photographs of me taken 37 years later.

Ugne Henriko photographer Ugne Henriko pays a lovely homage to her mother by recreating photographs of her mother from 37 years ago, using herself as the subject. Mother and Daughter takes you on a short but deeply touching journey of time travel and proves once and for all the truth that daughters often grapple with as they transition into adulthood, and thats: Yes, you do look like your mother.
