"It is all in the past" my mother said when she let me know she had thrown away all family slides. I was able to recover only one small box containing slides: some were loose - which I photographed leaving most details out of focus- others were wrapped in small packages, which I decided to keep un-opened.
Between silences, secrets and oblivions there are many stories and with them we can built and rebuilt our own, and with it, our identities.
