Unhomely Patrimony

Unhomely Patrimony is an introspective exploration inspired by a fear of loss that emerged in childhood during the disintegration of the family home.

This inherited state of perpetual transience allows the city to evoke notions of metaphysical homelessness. Certain 'placeless' spaces revive a nostalgic homesickness; illuminate a totemic internal image and compress the distance between past and present. Each photograph is thematically related to an elliptical narrative which locates memory fragments within the intertwined history of three generations, each sheltering their own fragile sense of home.
