Nate Berkus remembers partner Fernando Bengoechea who died in tsunami: “Every day I think of him”

View this post on Instagram

It’s been almost 15 years since the tsunami, when we lost Fernando. Every day I think of him, but especially today on his birthday. Fernando’s brother Marcelo keeps his art alive by hand weaving photographs using the same technique and museum quality materials. This month, @fernando_bengoechea_photo is donating 10% of proceeds from the sale of each woven photograph to the Tsunami Relief Fund via @globalgiving. Visit for more.

2 Remarks

  1. I still remember the day via Nate when I heard he lost his partner, hit like a brick to the head. I thought what it would be like to lose someone so close to that type of horrible event… I still get chills. I can only wish Nate the best of everything and it seems to be working.

  2. I accept my brother’s death but do not accept that his art has to die with him. I am on a mission to keep it alive.

    Thanks for the support!
