Jennifer’s Photo Stories (8) 曾錚的圖片故事(8)

First Photo of Three Sisters 三姐妹的第一張合影

It took about 9 or 10 years for my parents to move together after they married in 1965. People in the West can hardly understand how tightly everything was controlled in China. People don’t have freedom to move. Although my father was relocated to a remote town as a punishment for being a “black pawn of reactionary capitalist-roader” during the “Great Cultural Revolution”, my mother still wasn’t allowed to join him. I guess this was another form of punishment. For 9 or 10 years, our family struggled in two different places.
So, ever since I took a photo with my parents, my grandparents and two uncles when I was five(, I hadn’t not taken any other photos in several years. And the first photo after that one was this one with my two sisters, when I was already 8 or 9 years old. This means that our family had not been living together until then, when my youngest sister was already 2 or 3 years old.
