The Missing Piece
For this series I explored the seemingly unanswerable question “what is like to have a father?”. This led to a focus on the absenteeism, of not having a parent or being estranged from one.
This is the beginning of my exploration of the domestic abuse I experienced as a child at the hands of my father. The young girl is an avatar for myself.
This series is meant to display this feeling of emptiness and abandonment from trauma experienced as a child. The idea of innocence and when that is lost is central to this project.
