Departures (2016 - Ongoing)
When you leave your homeland to an entirely new one friends become your family, they help build ties and a sense of belonging.
Departures responds to the process of detachment experienced when friends and people we appreciate leave a place for good. The portraits made not long before departure retain a tangible recollection of a time and space, acting as evidence of a relationship.
The process of taking one final portrait aims to help assimilate and overcome the sudden feeling of abandonment.
