Holding On, Letting Go
As I watch my two young children grow, I feel the loss of my own parents. My mother died just after my first born's first birthday; my father, a couple of years ago. These photographs are part of an ongoing project, Holding On, Letting Go -- a contemplation about family, love and loss.
After years as a photojournalist and documentarian, it feels natural to turn a camera, in this case a smartphone, towards my two young daughters and husband. I blend in with the other parents holding their phones.
Found within our sleep-deprived chaotic lives, the moments of quiet hit me in the heart. They raise unanswerable questions, forcing me to embrace ambiguity.
