Neprocjenjiva ljubav: Zapanjujuće fotografije baka i djedova s unucima

Fotografkinja Sujata Setia putuje svijetom fotografirajući djedove i bake s unucima. Fotografije su jednostavno magične

Odrastajući u Jaipuru, fotografkinja Sujata Setia pronašla je svoje fotografije dok je bila mala s gotovo svim članovima svoje obitelji: njezinom mamom, tatom, bratom, čak i zalutalom mačkom u koju su uzeli njezini roditelji. Ali prebirući po foto albumima, nije pronašla niti jednu fotografiju s bakom i djedom

"Mislim da moji roditelji nikada nisu dovoljno fotografirali mene s bakom i djedom zato što uvijek vjeruješ da su tvoji roditelji besmrtni sve do dana dok te ne napuste", ispričala je Sujata.  "Kad ih nema, postoji osjećaj gubitka zbog nedostatka fotografija", rekla je. "Shvaćate da samo uspomene s vremenom postaju nejasna verzija stvarnosti."

Sada, kao majka male djevojčice, Setia mrzi razmišljati kako se iste te stvari događaju drugim obiteljima. Imajući to na umu, prošle je godine na svojim putovanjima nudila fotografiranje baka i djedova sa svojim unucima kao poklon njima. 

Fotografije koje je snimila prilično su zapanjujuće. 

"Doslovno hodam ulicama, po trgovačkim centrima, u avionima, u vlaku ... gdje god idem, uvijek tražim starije ljude i nudim im fotografiranje s članovima obitelji kao moj poklon", ispričala je. "Neki od njih ponekad misle da sam luda dama, a nekima je super."

Ponekad, kada Setia radi foto session, a bake i djedovi nisu se dugo vremena ili nikada vidjeli, fotografije su još posebnije. 

"Nedavno sam fotografirala jednu prabaku s bebom u Argentini, a mala beba nije bila dovoljno bliska s bakom da se osjeća ugodno", rekla je Setia. "Ali onda je baka počela pjevati staru crkvenu pjesmu djevojčici, osmijeh koji sam vidjela na tom šestomjesečnom djetetovom licu vrijedio je milijun dolara." Dodala je: "Ne znam koliko je pjesme razumjela, ali je samo zagrlila svoju prabaku kao da je jedna duša. Bilo je čarobno ... samo magično. "

Setia ne namjerava uskoro okončati svoj projekt; previše je ovo usrećuje.

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

This year has been such an incredible journey of self realisation for me. I have taken time out to produce art that I truly relate to and that comes from a place of love in my heart. One of the closest people to me in my life was my maternal grand mother and I lost her too early... too early for me to really understand and appreciate the meaning of that relationship. It is only now that I see my daughter growing up amidst the love and affection of her grandparents do I truly understand the significance of that bond. And now when I look back on those times my grand ma held me in her arms... I remember so vividly... her hands were so rough from years of working hard yet no one had ever held me in their arms with such tenderness as she did. Her voice was feeble and hoarse as age had snatched away its melody, yet the lullabies she sang to me were the sweetest symphonies I have ever heard. Her teeth... I remember there were none left when I last saw her laugh. I remember laughing right back at her and saying "grandma you look so funny when you laugh..." and just as I said those words, she laughed even louder, then held me in a tight embrace... only for me to realise months later that that would be the final embrace of our lives. My images this year of grandparents and their grandchildren from around the world is an ode to what I shared with my own grandma. Happy New Year everyone. May the love in your life truly shine and take you places this coming year. . . . . . . #clickinmoms #candidchildhood #childhoodunplugged #momazine #letthembelittle #momswithcameras #nothingisordinary #mom_hub #momtogs #exploretocreate #thebloomforum #bicfp #watchthisinstagood #click_vision #beyondthewanderlust #featurememozi #infinity_children #huffpostgram #clickmagazine #lookslikefilm #thelifestylecollective #unitedinmotherhood #wildandbravelittles #iamnikon #natgeoyourshot #official_photography_hub #dearphotographer #cpcfeature #instagram_kids

“ Will you hold me in your arms forever grandma?” . . . I have sworn that whichever part of the world I will travel to now... I will make sure to photograph a grand ma with her grand child... for how often really do we get our grandparents into the frame?! . . . . . . #clickinmoms #candidchildhood #childhoodunplugged #momazine #letthembelittle #momswithcameras #nothingisordinary #mom_hub #momtogs #exploretocreate #thebloomforum #bicfp #watchthisinstagood #click_vision #beyondthewanderlust #featurememozi #infinity_children #huffpostgram #clickmagazine #lookslikefilm #thelifestylecollective #unitedinmotherhood #wildandbravelittles #iamnikon #natgeoyourshot #official_photography_hub #dearphotographer #cpcfeature #instagram_kids

When I was a little girl and my parents were trying to teach me how to write my name, I remember always writing “Sugata” instead of “Sujata”. My parents tried correcting me several times but my Grand father would always say “YOU ARE RIGHT.” In a letter he wrote to me before he passed away (my father handed it over to me when I turned 18) my grandpa wrote “the whole world is waiting out there to judge you and tell you that you are wrong. But don’t forget that Grandpa will always think that YOU ARE RIGHT.” It is this unconditional faith my grandpa had in me and my abilities that has made me the person I am today. His arms were my safe zone. The place I would goto when I wanted to feel healed, inspired and loved... truly, unconditionally, without being judged on scorecards of rights and wrongs. And so this year I have resolved to be that same comfort zone for my daughter. I have promised her a space where she can be silly! Without being told that she’s wrong, for we all need a place in the world where all we are ever told is that “YOU ARE RIGHT!” Happy New year my dear friends... may this year you find that one person who becomes your emotional oasis. . . . . . . #clickinmoms #candidchildhood #childhoodunplugged #momazine #letthembelittle #momswithcameras #nothingisordinary #mom_hub #momtogs #exploretocreate #thebloomforum #bicfp #watchthisinstagood #click_vision #beyondthewanderlust #featurememozi #infinity_children #huffpostgram #clickmagazine #lookslikefilm #thelifestylecollective #unitedinmotherhood #wildandbravelittles #iamnikon #natgeoyourshot #official_photography_hub #dearphotographer #cpcfeature #instagram_kids
