Anita DeMatteo Sanborn, My Maternal Grandmother Was Born
"Nanny, Kitty, and the Kaiser, 1950" 20 x 20 inches on composite board. All photos are clickable to enlarge.
1905 portrait of my grandmother, her father and stepmother. I like to think that this portrait experience ignited my grandmother's love of photography, as she would start taking impromptu portraits just ten years later. She left a secret "stash" of more than 1,000 negatives when she died, many of which I am using in my own art.
"Mother's Love, 1921," approximately 17 x 20 inches on vintage clapboards.
