Last year I visited home and found some more family photos. I’m always trying to find out more about my family history because its good to know where you came from. I found photos of my grandfather during WW2 in Italy. He must have been at least 17 or 18 years old? He is the guy sitting down in the first photo and the second photo he is holding an ear piece. I liked that he was smiling and looks as though he was pretty cheeky, even during a shit time like that he remained positive. I was happy to find out that when Mussolini joined forces with the nazi’s my grandfather and his brother hid in a house in Milan for 3 years! Can you imagine that! 3 years!! My grandfathers brother even married one of the girls who lived in the house, sweet.
After the war ended my aunty told me all my grandfather wanted to do in life was to have children and grandchildren (SO Italian). He had 5 children, 13 grandchildren and 5 great grandchildren. Sadly he passed away when I was 7 years old. I still remember him being a sweet old man awww.
The bottom photo is after the war. He looks SO happy
My photos from when I used to actually get paid to take them at paris fashion week. I think I’m going to start taking more photos this year.
