My father passed away unexpectedly in 2020. Immediately after his death, I started going through my image archives to find photographs I’ve taken of him. Sadly, there weren’t that many pictures even though he’d been a vital part of not only my personal life but also my art practice for several years.
When we went through his stuff and emptied his apartment, I took with me a lot of his personal belongings and items that reminded me of him. I still find it hard to believe all of this is true and these items now function as evidence of the fact that he is no longer with me. But even if I can’t photograph him as a physical being I can still continue to make images of him and through that, find deeper meaning even in these circumstances.
