About the Book
As I unearthed buried objects found in drawers and dark closets throughout the house, I realized it was not only a documentary project but also a personal and artistic investigation of nostalgia and how we envision the past from the present perspective. How do we prepare for the passage of time and teach ourselves to remember the past? What do we leave behind by accident or on purpose?
This book is how one family left their memories to be found and how I chose to remember.
