Going home/dust/ashes 2008-2010

This series is a meditation on traveling 'home' and the variety of meanings the word holds for different individuals of different backgrounds consisting of photographs made with different people of different ages and upbringings in more than five American states and three countries spanning two years. Each photograph is a collaboration with its subject, attempting to both capture and incite a moment transgressive to an inherent nostalgia in the act of going home. Mortality, sanctuary, family and return are all recurring themes as different individuals reflected on the word defined as a place, person, or memory through storytelling and remembering.
