Today is the first anniversary of my Grandma’s death. I have choosen to dedicate this photoshoot to her, with her in memory and was heavy inspired by The Book of Life which helped me a lot during the mourning process.
I created Enrico within this process, using Elijah and his death brother as a metaphor and Enrico is the person helping Elijah with mourning. The mexican way of dealing with loss and having their annual Days of Death (in November) with such loving memories, a celebration of the lost people …. it helped me a lot to feel inspired by them to think of the happy times I had with my Grandma and how many things she did for us. It is still a hard topic for me, it only has been a year after all.
A big thanks again to @mismantisbjd for giving Enrico the face up he needed.
