My Mothers Daughter
In 2019, my sister and I had to place our mother in a home for dementia patients. Her mind was now a dark cloud of lost memories and her daily state was a confusing reality. She no longer recognized me, I was a stranger, a longshoreman standing on a dock from a dream she once had.
I began the process of mourning my mother and accepting she was gone. The woman I had known was no longer with us, just a thin shell of a body.
This series is part of my process, a moment for me to capture and create images for these mothers and daughters, so they may look back one day and remember each other as they stood side by side together in that moment.
