Description

I use the term “memories once removed” to refer to people and events someone was either not alive to experience or too young to remember, but has inherited nonetheless through the construct of family identity. This series speaks to the omitted nature of memories, especially those passed down and imagined through family lore, that co-author our personal narratives.
