Saving Mom
Project info

Two years ago, my mother had a stroke. Since then, she has not really been the same. She forgets things, have difficultys concentrating and is on sick leave on a doctors orden. Her desire to be the person she was before the stroke is so visible that it hurts me. With this work I have investigated our relationship, viewed the things that have hurt us, but enlightened the love that exists between us. I have chosen to work with the Polaroid camera to use it as a tool to emphasize the ephemeral and changing process she is going through. The Polaroid fades away as the memories of my mother does and the memories she has of herself.
