For all that we have done wrong in our lives, we seek forgiveness. In most instances, we seek such forgiveness from the most important people in our lives -- mothers, fathers, siblings, and friends. Guilt can be a destructive and haunting emotion. Through the framework of photography, I renew and rebuild these relationships, both with myself and with others.
