Where did you take the photo?
The photos were taken in my mother’s house in Toronto, Canada before I moved her out in the early winter months of this year, 2009. The last was taken around the same time with a friend who stood in for a shot to reflect how I was feeling.
What were you thinking before you took the photo?
I think I was saying good bye to these articles that I grew up with, the crazy antique doll wallpaper, the old light in the bathroom, my little wooden chair that I have kept, but that would never be back in this house I grew up in.
What were you thinking after you took the photo?
I think I was a little in shock that my mom was actually moving on with her life and I was just taking in the last moments to say goodbye in the only way that I knew how. To say thank you to the house for protecting us. It would never look like this ever again and I would never have the same access that I had to this place.
What’s interesting to you about the photo?
I not sure if it is interesting to anyone else, but it is full of memories for me and I will always hold on to these as reminders of where I came from. In some ways it’s cathartic.
What camera did you use?
I chose to shoot with my hasselblad that I only seem to use these days on special occasions, but should use more often.
