Here. Now. (work in progress)
“So, here you are
too foreign for home
too foreign for here.
Never enough for both.”
(Questions for Ada by Ijeoma Umebinyuo)
Family. Sense of rootlessness. Search for identity.
The feeling of confusion generated by the contrasts lived inside and outside my country in the past 10 years working as a photojournalist.
HERE. NOW. is a reminder, a notebook map. In it I seek to trace my roots, exploring the environments in which I have lived and ended up distancing over the years.
I document this process to reconnect, to reinsert myself and recognize me as part of something. To find a way back home, wherever that is.
