Grandpa’s House

I made this photograph of the dining room in my grandpa’s house a couple months after he passed away. The family had taken most of the stuff out of the room, leaving only this chair with a broken leg, and the curio cabinet where grandma’s collection of banks was displayed. The wall is covered in drawings by grandpa’s ten grandchildren, including several things that I made more than 25 years ago.

A tattered armchair sits in fromt of a wall covered in children's artwork in my grandfather's living room.
