Statement:

My grandmother lost her husband twenty-six years ago, and has since then shaped a new life. Her children are grown and she is left to spend time with herself, her house, her family's land, and her future. Through photographing my Grandmother, I have found an undeniable complexity at the root of human identity. Every year we age, life offers new challenges and hardships that we learn to cope with, conform to, and manage.

My grandmother takes on many roles that seem to define her selfhood. She pursues her future, all the while honoring her past.

Through this body of work, I welcome you alongside me in coming to understand her. She continues to subsist richly, and becomes an ageless, timeless symbol of life.
