Pieces of a Man


These images are excerpts from a book titled 'Pieces of a Man'. This project explores the dynamics of a father-son relationship as made possible through the reconciliation of my own. The twenty year absence of my father has played an undeniable role in shaping my identity, one that I have mentally repressed my entire life. Through the implementation of photography as a cathartic apparatus, I intended to solidify the nuances of my father in to these photographs, forming a clarified understanding of my own identity in the process.
