While in Winnipeg after my Grandfather passed away, my Mom and I spent a lot of time sorting out his house. We discovered a treasure trove of family artifacts including my Grandfather’s birth certificate, my Great-Grandfather’s passport, immigration records, marriage certificates, and boxes of photos. Particularly exciting for me was a photo of my parent’s when they lived in Fort Smith, NWT (my Mom looks so much like me it’s a bit spooky) and a photo of my brother and I with my father when we were tiny. I chose to photograph some of these treasures today for this week’s photo challenge to try and bring out a different aspect to the word home. I’ve also colour photocopied a number of these items in order to use them in the background of a canvas I’m planning – more on that soon.
