The themes of ‘home’ and ‘belonging’ are central to this project. What appears before your eyes is a dusty tri-dimensional family portrait. Time is passing, dust accumulating, tumbleweeds are rolling by. Ashes to Ashes. The characters happen to be in the same room, there is no intrinsic relationship between them, but they are each telling you their family’s story.   photo by Andrea Medri
