Away From Home

Away From Home began as a way to commemorate immigrant stories, focusing on sentimental objects that were carried miles away from home.

The objects hold within them stories of love, grief, joy, and so many more. I have been overwhelemed by the outreach of people wanting to share their stories and feel extremely lucky to have been able to encounter them. This volume is dedicated to everyone that has experienced what its like to be away from home, or will at some point in their life.


Through these stories, I have learned that wherever I am, home is not that far away. It is within people, food, photographs, letters and all that one chooses to associate with. Home is you.
