This book is about memories and distance, about missing. Through pictures, drawings and texts I go back and forth in time. Just how we remember things. How we forget them. Repeating stories in our heads again and again. Changing how we tell them. Fragments and details of my past. My own and yet universal. Leaving loved ones behind. Missing. The distance. Death. The dummy of this book was made during a workshop by Void (independant publisher). 8 artists were selected to participate, including myself.
