About this work:

“My spouse’s work in the Army means we shift between time together and time apart, and this series explores what it means to be present to our time together. Clouds chosen from photos of everyday experiences together fade into a warm vignette, indicating that these moments will someday be memories I call upon during time apart. The square format reflects an expanded calendar entry and will continue to document our year together before his next deployment.” -Emily Sullivan
