Family Album

This is a picture of my grandparents and my uncle Geppina walking by the streets of Salerno. Although I like this very much because it's one of the very few pictures of my grandparents being relatively young, what brings me back to this image is the unknown person behind them. She's probably accidentally got into the picture but I get the feeling that she's stalking them or just doing something weird. Which makes me wonder about how a simple "error" in a family portrait can become an opportunity for my imagination and how a picture "talks" in many ways we wouldn't expect to. -Mirko Caserta

It does look like she is up to something behind them...but still a wonderful family treasure!
