Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Nana, Grandma, Granny, Grandmother: by whatever name she goes, she holds a special place in our hearts and minds. In this unique book, a celebration in photography and prose, photographer Jayne Wexler and writer Lauren Cowen give grandmothers their due, bringing them front and center to recognize their importance in our lives. The first photography book to focus on the subject, Grandmothers follows Daughters & Mothers and Girlfriends, books by the same author-photographer team that have sold almost 350,000 copies.

Through 23 insightful essays and powerful black-and-white portraits of grandmothers with their grandchildren, the life-affirming bond between the two generations is explored and honored. Grandmother/actress Olympia Dukakis, grandmother/author Judy Blume, grandson/NBA star Steve Francis, and granddaughter/musician Alicia Keys are among the grandmothers and grandchildren of diverse ages, cultures, and locales profiled in this inspiring collection. As millions of baby boomers become grandparents in the next few years, and as aging takes on new meaning in today's society, Grandmothers will surely have a huge appeal.
