Description:

The photo shows five women of different ages, similar to each other in their features. Two of them are sitting: the eldest one, dressed in black, in a headscarf on her head and a slightly younger one, also in black, with an uncovered head and long smoothly brushed hair. To the right two women are standing: one in a dark jacket, a white blouse underneath and a long blonde pony-tail slung over her right shoulder and the other, the youngest-looking one of them, in a white blouse and a dark skirt, holding a bunch of wildflowers in her hand. To the left of the seated women there stands another, virtually identical to the younger one sitting down. She is dressed in a light-coloured blouse and a dark skirt. She is holding in her arms a barefoot baby just over one year old dressed all in white clothes. Around the women there stand six children of different ages: four girls and two boys. The children are dressed tidily, are wearing shoes and are clutching flowers. The photo was shot in a garden against a background of grenery ; According to the owner of the photo, it shows his great-grandmother (the woman with the headscarf on) sitting on a chair and her daughters with their children.
