About this submission

Throughout my father's life, he struggled with drug addictions, and after he unexpectedly passed away in 2017 I began documenting his spaces in and around my childhood home while also collecting an archive of letters, images, and recordings he left behind. In searching for a more complete story of my father’s struggle with addiction, I wander through my family’s history - exploring his relationship to prescription and illicit drugs, and my distant relationship with him. All the while reflecting on the past and considering how I might turn his traumatic and sudden death into something meaningful.
