this year has been such an incredible journey of self realisation for me. I have taken time out to produce art that I truly relate to and that comes from a place of love in my heart. One of the closest people to me in my life was my maternal grand mother and I lost her too early... too early for me to really understand and appreciate the meaning of that relationship. It is only now that I see my daughter growing up amidst the love and affection of her grandparents do I truly understand the significance of that bond. And now when I look back on those times my grand ma held me in her arms... I remember so vividly... her hands were so rough from years of working hard yet no one had ever held me in their arms with such tenderness as she did. Her voice was feeble and hoarse as age had snatched away its melody, yet the lullabies she sang to me were the sweetest symphonies I have ever heard. Her teeth... I remember there were none left when I last saw her laugh. I remember laughing right back at her and saying "grandma you look so funny when you laugh..." and just as I said those words, she laughed even louder, then held me in a tight embrace... only for me to realise months later that that would be the final embrace of our lives.

My images this year of grandparents and their grandchildren from around the world is an ode to what I shared with my own grandma.

Happy New Year everyone. May the love in your life truly shine and take you places this coming year.
