6: Children’s portraits

“The portraits of the children are all taken by my mother. Wonderful snapshots of my brother Peter in the pigsty, my sister Teresa at the make-up table, as well as both, brother and sister, under the sun lamp. 

The portraits of our seven children are also by her. She developed these herself in her darkroom in Fuschl and of course proudly showed them to her friends, who commissioned her for taking photographs of their families instead. These jobs allowed my mother to travel the world. 

Please do not look at my school report, which is also displayed here. Just too embarrassing!”
