Not here, Nor there series

This series is both a love letter to the people and places I left behind when I emigrated to Canada and an examination of the beautiful and difficult parts of embracing a new home and new friends and all the ways in which it changes you in a magnitude you could have never imagined. It is a requiem to the person you left behind and the one you could have been. But more than anything it is a visual representation of feeling torn apart, between places, decisions, people, or ideas, that never-ending feeling of waiting, having sailed but not having yet arrived.
