thesis / dissertation description
This body of photographic artwork, 7,223 Between, explores the physical and emotional distance between my immediate family. This resulting dispersion created a shift in both my understanding, and experience, of family and home. The place that my family used to congregate around is now absent. These images traverse the surface of my relationships with family and speak to a universal experience of longing for family and home. Transient interior spaces, landscapes, and disconnected portraits of my parents come together in this non-linear narrative to suggest at the journey to rediscover a sense of Home, while winding through nostalgic failures, desire for comfort and, the mental need to accept and escape.
