Permanent Home

Permanent Home

When I read or dream, the scene often takes place in the house I grew up in. I have found this to be common for many people. When you are young the world makes a deep impression on you, and when you are young your home is your world.

In the photographs from this series I use the house, where my parents still live, as well as surrounding locations from my childhood, as a stage to explore memory, attachment, and how place is almost always defined by the people who live there.

Recently I moved back home from NYC to LA. I spoke along with several other photographers about my experience in Los Angeles and the strangeness of returning to a place you once knew well but that has become foriegn. 

Here is the podcast from the event. My portion starts around 30 minutes in.
