Rosie / by Emily Rose Bennett

During Thanksgiving I took a few quick portraits of my grandmother and namesake Rosemary Greene. Born and raised in Indianapolis, Rosie grew up pretty independent as my great grandmother, Nadine, worked a lot with several marriages (six) mixed in. Rosie married the handsome Paul F. Greene when she was 18 and had four amazing babies. She'll turn 80 a few days before Christmas. She's pictured here in her little room where she stays at my Aunt's house in Columbus, Ohio. She loves the color red and cardinals, and doesn't understand why people read newspapers online.
