My father passed away from cancer when I was in college. This piece is part of a project I did that helped me through the grieving process while being away at school.
The image was created by shooting a roll of 35mm film twice through the camera for the double exposed, overlapping frame effect. For the first pass through I photographed items from my childhood that have memories associated with my dad. On the second pass through I photographed objects from the circumstances at the time. The parallel images served to illustrate the contrast between the two periods of my life and now, 10 years later looking back on this piece, It has taken on new meaning for me as mementos of both defining periods of my life.
