Gifts from grandma photo series

Paying homage to the special relationship between grandmothers and their granddaughters, ‘A Present’ is a poignant photography project by Lithuanian artists, jeweller Giedre Duoble and photographer Ugne Henriko.

The project reflects on the bond between grandmothers and granddaughters through the presents passed down from the older to the younger generation, which serve as symbols of love and longevity. 

“The project is about presents that are intended to be kept forever,” says Duoble.
