Time flows away rapidly. The fate of each of us is closely related to the life of another human being. The memories collected in this book are the sequence of flashes of a single fate – like photographs they preserve a history so far anonymous. The family has a double character. Blood keeps us together for good and for bad. Sometimes the achievements of families make a permanent trace in the history, though pushing the individuals of the same name in the shadow. Nevertheless every member of the family feels the sign of time and takes their part of responsibility for the family, as well as for the society they live in. The task of future generations is not to break the tradition and, through their own achievements, join the spiral of time to carry on their ancestors' heritage.
„Chronicle” is based on the memories and photographs of my family. It presents 12 pictures from the collection given to me by my father in 2009.
