A Day With My Grandpa
I have always loved to hear the stories my grandpa had to tell. He has been many things in his life: father, husband, sauce-maker, World War II veteran, lawyer, photographer, spiritual adviser, and, more than anything, a great inspiration to me. In 2013, however, aware that he has been forgetting some of the stories that have so fascinated me, I decided to document, through photography and audio recording, part of his life. This essay is part of my work dedicated to him.
