Who’s your daddy?

July 20, 2020

When told that he resembled his grandfather, photographer Drew Gardner launched into a project exploring families and history.

The photo above is of Hugo de Salis, the 4th great-grandson of Napoleon juxtaposed with the portrait of Napoleon by Jacques-Louis David. This ongoing project is titled, “The Descendants.”

Here are some more images from the series:

Helen Pankhurst, great grand-daughter of women’s rights activist, Emeline Pankhurst.

Frederick Douglass and Kenneth Morris, Douglass’s third great grand-son.

Irina Guicciardini Strozzi, the 15th great grand-daughter of Lisa del Giocondo. The Mona Lisa by Leonardo DaVinci.

Thomas Jefferson’s portrait by Rembrandt Peale and Shannon LaNier, Jefferson’s sixth great grand-son.
