A moving and extensive journey one photographer takes as she tries to piece together the fragmented story of her brother, a Vietnam vet who suffered from post-traumatic stress disorder and took his own life in 1979. She montages old letters, photographs and recent pictures shot in Vietnam to mend her brother’s broken history and the dysfunction that unravelled the family. As she states on her site, “Making the photographs is, for me, a way of coping, and at the same time, a way for me to understand what happened. It is a way to share my story - what I find. To make my photographs, I must pay attention, must see, and must lose myself in the moment.” I couldn’t think of a better way to wander into the pathless realm of grieving and retrieve the gems that are hidden within. I highly recommend following the link to her site to delve into the full story.
