Initial Exhibit made possible by a grant from the Chicago DCASE Individual Artist Program.

Project Description:
The purpose of this collection of photographs is to tell the story of my journey from the frozen Chicago lakefront, to Havana, Cuba. My hope is to illustrate the painful, emotionally exhausting, and creatively inspiring machinations of slowly losing my Mother… Mary Applewhite, only to have that offset by the sensory overload and heartbreakingly beautiful experience of wandering the streets of Havana.

Materials:
Photographs and written narrative.

Exhibit Dates & Work Available to Own:
Dates will be announced in the coming months. Photographs to be featured in the exhibit will be featured on this website soon. Please send a message via the Contact form to stay in touch or make inquiries. Thank you!

*Photograph: Farewell to the Morning Prayer
The morning she left us. I said goodbye to my Mother for the last time and drove to my “house of worship” on the lake to make this photograph.
