Family- an important part of our past and our present with some keys to our future. Some traditions pass from generation to generation while other traditions evolve incorporating society advancement as well as individuality. The role of motherhood is shaped by trial and errors, the many don'ts and the notable do's. The dreams and memories of our mothers are told in stories to remind us of who they are and in essence, who we are. Mothers have lost children and children have lost mothers but through the tears and tales, family is still family.
While my family has had a complicated past, "The Extraordinary Britos" gallery show emphasizes the unique quality of each person in a playful manner. This is my grandfather, the man who called me Lucy and played little tricks. This is my grandmother, the woman who'd fill my stomach with wonderfully rich rice and beans. This is my mother, the one who's taught me to be a mother with love and compassion. These are my aunts and uncles, who's laughter is most memorable and genuine. I've found they all laugh despite opposing circumstances.
