I can’t help but feel a little awestruck when I get the chance to do a multi-generation shoot like this. When two people are surrounded by their children and a gaggle of grandchildren like this, it seems that life’s successes and failures fade away amidst the sounds of family. It was my honor to photograph this 50th anniversary celebration complete with tikki torches, bamboo folding chairs, and a giant wooden statue filling in for one missing brother. Mr. and Mrs. De Stigter, congratulations on 50 years of life together.
