In 2012, I visited my grandmother in South Central Los Angeles. Fearful that when she passes, many photos would be lost, I took a bunch of photo albums to a Kinko’s near USC to scan in as many photographs as possible before my plane departed for New York. I was able to scan about one hundred images and when I got home, I began to pair the images. I was most interested in the images that seemed to echo or mimic one another through small changes in gestures and body position, shifts in camera frame or the addition of new props.
