"Our lives are full of stories and incidents that we try to unravel.
Wanting to make sense of our day to day.
Finding a place that gives us purpose and meaning.
I began to sort out old photographs in a trunk, scared that last year's rain might have destroyed them.
I sifted.
I stumbled upon memories, vague and half-forgotten. Faces emerged repeated, places too, known and disremembered.
There's no one left to ask, no one to tell me.
And hence began a visual conversation, a filling in of the gaps and the cracks and the shaky-in-between places. Maybe a homage, maybe just a keepsake."
