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.

Made me giggle

And speaking of statues . . .

These Guardians of Transportation attend the Hope Memorial Bridge connecting Cleveland’s east and west sides.  The scale of these monumental pylons make them difficult to photograph, but I remember being captivated by the detail and art deco loveliness when I was still a kid and we drove across the bridge.  The carved figures are on both sides of the four pylons.  The guardians each hold a symbol of transportation in their hands.

THE GUARDIANS OF TRAFFIC The Lorain-Carnegie Bridge ...

I would hate to see what these guys could do if they decided to strike back at the statue topplers.
