The Free Dictionary defines “Limbo” as “states of oblivion, confinement, or transition.” It further elaborates that it “is derived from the theological sense of Limbo as a place where souls remain that cannot enter heaven, for example, unbaptized infants. Limbo in Roman Catholic theology is located on the border of Hell, which explains the name chosen for it. The Latin word limbus, having meanings such as “an ornamental border to a fringe” and “a band or girdle,” was chosen by Christian theologians of the Middle Ages to denote this border region. English borrowed the word limbus directly, but the form that caught on in English, limbo, first recorded in a work composed around 1378, is from the ablative form of limbus, the form that would be used in expressions such as in limb, “in Limbo.”

Forewarnings on falling slave to ones belongings is a recurring piece of wisdom that is dispensed quite often by the prudent and judicious. But as we live in a material world, it is in reality difficult to see people devoid of their personal effects. Along with precious memories, material possessions of people we know are all we have to remind us of who they are or were. The saying in the bible is so true that “for where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.” While this verse admonishes of having false gods, special possessions need not be seen as being such. These belongings disclose a person’s passions, interests, vocation, or livelihood. They offer a glimpse into their lives. This is the idea behind photographer Camilla Catrambone’s photo series, Portraits of my Family.
