“This work came out of my intrigue upon discovering family’s photos once locked away in an attic later discovered upon the death of a family member. In 2011 I started my project using these family photographs together with my contemporary images of random places and landscapes to help create a story of the past. It is an ongoing project with several installation pieces currently in the works.”
