My Mennonite Mother
My Mennonite Mother is an ongoing project (2019-present.) The project initially began to learn more about my mother and her family to feel more connected to my heritage, and was later revisited following the passing of my grandmother. Looking through objects, places and faces of my heritage this project seeks to explore and bridge the gap between the past and present, to understand my mother’s upbringing and where I fit in.
