Return, Renee (2017)

"As a first generation American and now dual citizen, my relationship with my family back home has always been an interesting one. Both sides of my family are very matriarchal, which is something that has definitely shaped who and how I am as a woman. My relationships with these strong women add another dynamic that I’ve only ever experienced; to see the energies between us captured so beautifully flood me with emotions that I don’t quite know how to put into words."

Return looks into the migration of second generation American born millennials to the land of their parents and grand parents. Return will look at women of color specifically, as their journeys are usually forgotten. Return will look into the complexities that comes with reconnecting with an environment that might embrace or reject you.
