Food for the Fam­ily Fam­ily Din­ner

‘ This pic­ture was taken at my grand­par­ents’ apart­ment,’ ex­plains Guil­laume. ‘It’s a tra­di­tion in my fam­ily to go there on Christ­mas Eve for din­ner. Like every year, my fa­ther and grand­fa­ther had gath­ered in the kitchen to cook for the fam­ily. I hap­pened to walk by and no­ticed how they were framed by the door. I didn’t have my cam­era, so I ran to the bed­room to grab it, re­turned to that spot and waited for the per­fect mo­ment. It hap­pened so quickly, I shot only this one frame.

‘ The light­ing wasn’t op­ti­mal, so I had to open up to f/1.4. In­clud­ing the drapes in the frame made the scene all the more the­atri­cal, even though this mo­ment was quite or­di­nary. This was the last time we’d cel­e­brate din­ner here to­gether as my grand­fa­ther passed away the next year, mak­ing this pic­ture even more mean­ing­ful to me.
