90th Birthday of a Hard Working Immigrant

November 17, 2017  •  Leave a Comment

This portrait of my grandfather is very special to me. I photographed the portrait in Detroit a few months ago. My grandfather turned 90 years old and is close to my heart. 

My family emigrated here slowly from Pakistan in the late 1970's. They are hardworking and we thank them each day for all of the sacrifices they made so the future generations of their family could have a better life. 

The photo to the left is from 1952 shot by a forgotten photographer. The portrait on the right is him at 90. May we all be so lucky to have our health and happiness at his age.
