I’ve read somewhere that in some cultures when somebody is ill they call every relative and gather at that persons home. This has a “healing” effect on the person. The fact that all those people come to visit you, care about you is a great comfort, a “medicine“. Even if it’s only a placebo effect. It works!
Nobody was sick here, don’t get me wrong, I just always remember that story and appreciate every big gathering/event and the privilege to be there. Hopefully Patric will look back on these photos one day and smile. I’m not saying it will bring back memories because none of us have memories from that age. Another reason to love photography. Wishing you guys all the best!
