who she is to me

2012-2013.

Thesis exhibition for NEXT 2013 at the Corcoran Gallery of Art. 

This is a collaborative project between myself and Leah Brown-Rich. Leah and I met in the spring of 2012. She was my subject in a photo story. Through photographing her life and getting to know her, a friendship was formed. We came together to nurture this unexpected relationship and collaborate on a visual story that belongs to both of us. We explore the lives of our grandmothers through family snapshots and as overlapping histories reveal themselves we find solace in an equivalence we never knew existed.
