I Don't Live Here Anymore

In 2016, my mother was forced out of the house she lived in for nearly 30 years. Despite the twisted circumstances, thankfully, she moved to a more handicapped accommodated apartment. However, this does not take away from the grief of leaving behind a space that has been part of our lives for all these years, and the community where I was raised. This photo essay documents the final moments of leaving my childhood home in Elberon, New Jersey. Interspersed between them, are old family photos of joyous memories in that space.
