About the Image
I am exploring my family’s lineage and making images of the ones who are closest to me. This image is inspired by the story of my family’s rose bush. The rose bush was dug up from my family’s home in Washington D.C. and moved to the place I know as my childhood home. But now that setting has withered into a memory. Those times now live through us and with that, it is our responsibility to carry these stories and to inspire generations to come.
