Canvas Photo Album

Relationship: Child of im/migrant

The visual perspective of images in a photo album is just as important as the physical feel of photos in my hands. A book made of canvas, holds the photos of my family history and russian culturel reminding me of my beautiful and diverse background, full of my favorite Belarusian foods and toys. The family surrounding these photos creates an  overwhelming joy, sadness, and respect for their ability to raise and care for me. Some Important figures in the many photos of the album include my grandpa from my mother's side and my grandma from my father's side, who both sadly passed away, years apart, but still sufficiently manage to create nostalgia when I view them in the many photos they appear in. A loving energy is predominant when I view all the photos. I feel as if I am holding the history of my family in my hands that reminds me to constantly grow and love.
