That Nonna Life
Photography by Ariane Laezza
Likely General Gallery
After the passing of her Nonna a few years ago, Ariane became inspired by the style, strength and simple approach to life of her grandmother and women of her generation. These women were creative and resilient in the face of adversity and immigration to a new land, defining their experiences through familial comforts, traditions and craftsmanship. This series touches on the semiotics of culture, immigration and womanhood through the lens of the Italian “Nonna” and the Italian diaspora.
