Parallel

Parallel_Still150

┬áParallel is a personal journey to understand the woman I never get to know, my late mother. The journey begins after I am finally given permission to read┬ámy mother’s diary, the entries were written at a time where my mother was the same age as I was when Parallel begins. It is a visual record and documentation of my journey, the things I saw, how I come to terms with the past and my own emotions. A shared memory between mother and daughter.

A journey to face the past, to find hope and courage for new beginnings. All is well.
