Flower crown

This is one of my favorite found photos from my collection. There is no date or place written on it, so it stays somewhat timeless even if, at the same time, could be from my own childhood. A moment of happiness and also the shadow of the fact that this photo ended up at the flea market, eventually. I will never know what were really the relationships in this family but this enhances for me the symbolic power of the photo. It allows me to project on it an ideal of two equals taking care of the child in the beautiful light of a summer vacation. It allows me to imagine that the father wearing a feminine flower crown tried to signify something more then just making his daughter laugh. (Even if just him making his daughter laugh is enough for the nostalgic beauty of this photo.)
