Dad's Place in the Forest
These are the final images of my late father's forest home in northern Lower Michigan, as it existed on October 12, 2013, a little over a year after his passing. They are rather deliberately zoomed-out, and stark, but that is how the place felt to me on that final visit, so that is how I captured these images. Always a place of laughter and family activities, going back to the early 1970s, the place, while peaceful and beautiful on that day, emanated a shrieking silence, not unlike that which I experience when I view these images, now. This small collection of images is a final, physical remembrance of a place, only, and certainly not of the wonderful things that happened here, during the years of my parents' and grandparents' lives. It was important, though, to record these for my children, who, for now, haven't the emotional capacity to return here, and for my brothers ..... and for me.
