Shannon Foreman is a student of the San Francisco Art Institute, California. These photographs are part of a larger series entitled Please Write Soon. I began the series last year after I found out that my mother was dying. I have a collection of letters that she wrote to me between 1995 to 2012 while she was locked up in various rehabilitation clinics, psychiatric facilities and jail. Forming a kind of ritual, I would re-read these letters and then photograph at the Golden Gate Bridge.
