This obsession with my family history brought about an internal struggle that had been previously submerged. The photographs I have made in response to that struggle depict a life of deep isolation from my parents, evoking an uncomfortable nostalgia for hauntingly familiar surroundings. Being inspired by past feelings of isolation led me to create these images where I can attempt a connection to the disconnected character I am so afraid of becoming.
