“مريم العذراء.” (mary).
35mm - film, series. 
2018.

These photographs were captured the day after my grandmother's passing in an attempt to document absence and the relationship betweeen space and memory centered around her former apartment of fifty-six years. 

I position the body: that of a family member and  my own, in reconciliation with  spaces where my grandmother “passed through” primarily her home, church and neighborhood, creating a sense of improvised ‘oneness’. I also consider my body as an additional site of passage, where my grandmother’s influence lived  fluently. 

As a result, each image details a permutation of the acceptance of death and letting go.
