the extended families

If there's one thing that this year has taught me, is that relationships are important. I don't know what I would do, where I'd be or who I'd be without my family and my friends. I used to think families were a given, and most likely throughout my teens I've taken them for granted, but as I grew older I realised that "family" is a precious and fragile concept. Especially nowadays when it seems to evolve and develop far from what we thought was a reality. I was talking to somebody a few days ago about this and I came to realise that what kept me sane and grounded, through tough times, through the massive impact (that we still can't fully grasp yet) of the social-media influence over us and through all of this pandemic we're going through, is the relationship I have with my family, my friends and my partner. The true and honest kind of a relationship. This, alongside happiness and health, is everything I need in life. What I want in life, is a somewhat of a different story, that I'm not gonna get into today. Here's a couple of portraits, that honour some memorable moments of their families and extended families.
