By definition, home is the space we live in; house, but often this word represents much more than space itself. It is the place where we feel safe, where we belong, and find our peace. In a way, it shapes us and tells a story about us. It represents our identity and reveals our interests, routines, and relationships... I use a photo book to create a self-portrait.
Along with the photos, the text that represents the messages with my loved ones plays an equally important role. The title page gives us the code for reading the book to discover the locations.
By recording the details of the space, people, and some everyday objects, I tell a story about myself. Each object/person provides information about the significance of the location, or the city, for me. At the same time, through all these objects/persons, I ask myself, where is my home? Is it all three locations, just one of them, or none? What can each site say about me, and how do they shape me?
