Some Grandmotherly Advice on Social Media

Wise Words

Spanish artist Chacho Puebla has always wanted to do some sort of project with his great-aunt, his sister, and typography. (As we all do.) And what he’s come up with for this photography collection is an excellent photo essay (entitled “Grandmother Tips”) featuring a woman of another generation, bestowing some much-needed wisdom on the internet.

As my son gets older and I get more grey hair, I wonder what kind of advice will I give to my grandkids. My three grandmothers where always giving me sermons instead of tips. “Be carfeul with your money”. “Don’t get involved with that girl”, “Save”, “Get a haircut, you look like a hippie”, and all those classic parent, grandparent comments.

When you’re younger you think you’ll never fall into that same kind of discourse, until you find yourself talking about stupid (cliché) stuff with your kid, about how important school is and if you don’t have a degree you’re nobody. I hope I can give better advice some day. In the meantime, here are some tips my grandmother should have given me.

And here, featuring the photography of Puebla’s sister, Lula, is their great aunt! Click photos to see the full size.

What we just looked at together is our future. Is your mind sufficiently blown?
