Photographer Archives Grandparent’s Daily Lives To Highlight The Amazing Value They Hold
Mexican photographer Amy Luna created portfolio of pictures she took of her grandparents. She published these photos so that she’ll have something to remember them by when they are no longer in this world. There are very few people in this world who have more knowledge than our grandparents. Sadly, we might see them go one day, but these photographs serve as a reminder as to how valuable they really are.
“My grandparents are probably two of the most important people in my life. I wanted to document basically everything that is prominent in my mind when I think of my grandparents, just to have in my heart forever.” – Luna told The Huffington Post
Amy Luna captured the essence of the everyday lives of her grandma Carol and grandpa Gene in their Colorado home. Carol, 81, does embroidery, practices photography and puts out the laundry. Grandpa, 83, drinks coffee while he does the daily crossword puzzle. They enjoy cuddling with their grandkids, as well as with each other. Their marriage has lasted a good 60 years and their love for each other has never been stronger.
The bond she shares with her grandfather is that of no other as he was the only father figure in her life growing up.
“He walked me down the aisle with my mother and gave me away to my husband. He is a very special man,”
As for her grandmother, well they are the best of friends!
“The impact this woman has had on my life is beyond measure, and I will hold her in my heart forever and ever,”
She hopes to inspire others to cherish and value their elderly family members: “I want to show them to really cherish moments, to cherish family members and time that you have with family members,”
