This photograph was taken on a trip to Berlin, Germany. The image is with friends I went with. It shows a moment of calm from the trip but that trip was emotional and life changing for me. My grandmother escaped Germany in 1939 to avoid religious persecution from the Holocaust. During my time there, I was able to retrace where her and her family lived, fled from, and died. I produced a series of work that wouldn’t have manifested if I hadn’t visited and hadn’t been surrounded by supportive, creative people.
