Artist’s Statement
My dear friends Susie and her daughter Tia recently moved into government- subsidized housing. This work—a compilation of photography, art, poetry, and prose—documents the physical and spiritual changes in their lives before, during, and after this transition. The piece first introduces Susie and Tia visually with a life-size portrait. Then, a series of books details their experience with words, poetry, and vivid symbolic imagery. Although the books are numbered, the statements are nonlinear and can
be read randomly. I am grateful that Susie and Tia have agreed to share their perspectives on this redirection of their lives. They have endured
it with integrity, and I feel honored to have their trust in presenting their feelings.
