In honor of my late grandmother’s love for nature, I created this portrait inspired by Kehinde Wiley’s painting of President Obama.


(Sep 2017)
My grandma rolled her hazel eyes when I asked to take a portrait of her, but to my surprise I saw her getting ready for the photoshoot. Her face became luminous while putting on her downy wool coat and diaphanous scarf.
As lively as she looked, it was as if she sensed this would be among her last photos on this earth.
