With Love

I found myself obsessively trying to photograph every single action that my grandmother made. Perhaps, this is how the project began - my need to control something in order to not be constantly reminded of the regression of my grandmother’s health. I found myself drawn to moments where her presence was tip toeing the line between being latent and being present. The moments are fleeting
but grounded within the world it was made in - something imaginary. I create letters in my head about what I would write to her and what I would say to her during our last goodbye. These letters never seemed to be fully-formed or physically made because of my inability to come to terms with the reality of the situation. These photographs are placeholders of what I would like to say - the conversations that I would like to dictate between myself and her. One day I will have the courage to write these letters but for now I present these, with love.
