Nanna Jill
Nanna Jill
Jill is a young grandmother and it is not surprising that her house is a bustling hub. As her grandchildren laugh and play in the sun-drenched living area, her son and daughter give updates on their latest art projects.
Mama Maureen + Mama Audrey
Mama Maureen + Mama Audrey
Maureen and Audrey are sisters and they bustle about the kitchen together like one person. Without instruction, they add to and finish off each other’s dishes, occasionally checking in with each other to confirm they’re doing it right.
Naanii Ritu
Naanii Ritu
When we meet Naanii Ritu, she is nearing the end of a six-month stay in Australia. Living in Deniliquin, a small country town in New South Wales, it is a stark contrast to the bustling life she has in her homeland, India.
