Up until he passed away in 2013 my grandpa used to make baskets, vases and coasters of straw. Using only his hands and a couple of simple tools he made beautiful, lasting things that made a lot of people very happy.
I’m very happy to have had this opportunity to portrait him and create a lasting memory of one of my role models. His mentality really rubbed off on me; he used to say “Don’t worry, it’ll work out fine”. This is my mantra for life.
Thank you grandpa and RIP!
