HOME AWAY | 2014 - 2016
The military family is a unique and often misunderstood subculture. Over the past few years, I have been exploring the concept of how “home” is defined, when displaced so frequently within this community and culture.
What does home even mean to me? To my family?
Does my physical dwelling define our home?
Through all the relocations, have I ever truly felt home?
Does my family being together define home?
If so, what does that mean when my husband is deployed for nine months?
What does that mean now that my oldest is living apart from us in another country, halfway around the world?
HOME AWAY is a visual narrative of the feelings and emotions that a military family regularly experiences, while being interrupted, uprooted and displaced over and over again. Ultimately, it is a journey -- a journey of transition, acceptance and redefining a home away from home.
