Art Assignment 19: Relative Strangers
I already know a fair bit about my own family thanks to a genealogy project one of my cousins did. So for this project I turned my attention to my married family instead. My brother and sister-in-law had their beautiful baby boy on Thanksgiving Monday (Canadian Thanksgiving, not American). I jokingly call him my little Thanksgiving turkey. Because their family lives a five-hour drive away from mine, the only time I had ‘met’ Kieran was on Skype. He mostly stared blurrily towards the webcam and furrowed his brow as strange voices came out of the computer speakers. So when I had a chance to meet him face-to-face over Christmas, I knew it was his photo I wanted to take.
