Documentary Project

Four years ago Grandpa Frap passed away, leaving behind his sweet companion and wife, Grandma J. They were married for over 60 years and had four wonderful children and many grandchildren and great-grandchildren. As with any marriage, they survived through trials. Grandpa often worked far from home, they lost a child. But they supported each other, and had many happy moments as well. What do you do, when your companion of 60 years is gone?

Recently I had the opportunity to go over to her home and help with a spring cleanup. While doing so, I couldn’t’ help but notice that many of Grandpa Frap’s things were exactly where he had left them 4 years ago.

Some of his tools had cobwebs and some were dusty. There was a bucket of smashed aluminum cans just waiting to go to the recycle center. Seeing these everyday objects that still hold so many memories of Grandpa really struck me.

My purpose in documenting this specific subject is to show that though a loved one may no longer be with us, they still live on through the things they loved, and the ones who loved them.  But also how difficult it can be to part with those we love.

Photography is my way of seeing the beauty in the everyday and even mundane. Whether it is objects or moments, they define who we are and who we become. They make us happy, sad, and sometimes angry. But I will never be sad that I documented the everyday.
