Photography is an exploration for me and a method to be able to connect with the past. I have always loved old things and feelings of nostalgia. During the past year, I lost my grandmother and couldn’t say goodbye because of the pandemic. Since then, I have been making my peace and closure with it, which led me to find old photographs of her and my family. I spent extended periods piecing together specific photographs for this series. Looking back on these old images and memories, it feels like unlocking different parts of who they were. With my grandma, she was a mother, but at the same time, she was a sister, friend, and daughter. I wasn’t able to see these other sides of her or ask her questions about it. Film photography has an emotional connection to me and is intertwining within my life. I catch glimpses of who the people I love, and this allows me to preserve their memories.
