Grandmother's house

By Laura Corrado

This print is part of a project made in 2014. The aim was to create a portrait of my grandmother's house. She was part of the Italian Egyptians Community that were born and lived in Cairo until 1956, when they were forced to leave Egypt for war reasons. She felt very intensely her origins and her house was full of objects that she brought from Africa. This darkroom print is made on a 5 x 6,50 cm crystal drop that was part of one of her house's chandeliers.
