Photographer George Cavalletto captured images of his extended family for this monograph, published shortly before his death.
The portraits in What You Love explore the changing nature of love over the course of life — mothers nurturing infants, children discovering the world, young couples bonding, adults enmeshed in the lives they’ve made, elders grappling with mortality — and the hidden connections that bind them into a family.
About The Photographer
George Cavalletto had been taking pictures for his whole life, but after his wife died he retired from teaching and devoted himself to photography, beginning an intensive course of study at New York’s International Center of Photography and capturing 100,000 images in the span of a decade.
