Acacia Lane

Inspired by the Family Spaces and Cubao projects, a family friend asked me to photograph a home she inherited but unfortunately will have to let go of soon. I wasn't quite sure if I could convey the emotions of a place I had never been to. So I asked questions and I listened to her stories while she showed me around.

"I was in tears," she wrote when I shared the images a few weeks later.

The ability to make a connection, to touch someone, is at the heart of why I make pictures. Thanks, M.
