I am the fifth child of my grandparents. For forty-four years we have been a family. My grandfather's diagnosis of "terminal cancer" gave me the impulse to begin this project. I portray our last months together, a photographic narrative about memories, closeness. About the quiet days when we silently hoped for an extension of our common time. About letting go. It won't be the same as it was anymore. What was, will remain. The portrait of a family saying goodbye to each other.
