Coming Home Again and Again is an ongoing documentary project researching cultural, religious, societal and familial identity. Caregiver, the initial volume, examines my becoming caregiver to my mother after her diagnosis with vascular dementia. The photographs look into our reversal of roles along with changing family dynamics. This undertaking is the beginning my inquiry into my own identity by means of observing my personal relationships, life and death, what is private and public, and a spiritual reawakening. This inspired the creation of a visual narrative of how our memory of people and past events, personal identity, and our own preconceptions can shape the discourse of what each individual views as historical fact.
