Photos from California

Gardiner is in California at the moment. Pictures were taken while out on her walk in Japan town, San Jose. Due to the corona virus situation only a few restaurants were open she explained. The images she shares leave certain impressions; quiet, secretive and even lonely.



Photos of Family

I asked Gardiner if she could share photos from when she was little. Through these photos I feel as though I get a glimpse of her history and history that connects her and I via Japanese roots. Connecting the dots. I am left with more questions.



Photos from Chicago

Photos that Gardiner shares with me over our email exchange. They allow me to see her life through her lenses and our interaction feels much more personal and close.
