For five years, Hungarian photographer Lilla Szász photographed women living in shelter houses, focusing on elderly women, young girls who had become criminals and homeless mothers. Her main question was how women find happiness in these extreme circumstances of life. In Daughters, Szász asked the young girls what the word 'beauty' meant for them. The girls then organized the photo-shoot; they behaved in front of the camera the way they wished to be seen by the viewer. The outcome is their result, their image - of happiness and a better life.
