Displaying family portraits in your home is very common in the US. You need to have your family framed! Photos in beautiful silver frames are found on every fireplace shelf, on coffee tables and desks. A wedding, a graduation or the whole family at Christmas.
In Denmark we would call it “hyggeligt” – meaning: it makes you feel good!
And it sure does.
These last weeks I have made an alternative series of family portraits. Girls and women, a couple of boys – and a troll – in new and old frames.
They are now all over my room, but on Saturday September 15th. you can find them at the H Street Festival 2012 in Washington DC http://hstreet.org/events/festival/
And who knows on which wall or fireplace shelf they might end up?
Making them made me feel………..good, better………
