Longing can have multiple meanings. Some people long for home and some people for things they don't have. In these works, longing is for what could be and what once was. It is for what never was and what might have been. It is longing for friends who are no longer here while hoping for something new and wonderful to arise from the old. The people I document are a part of and yet separate from the world they inhabit. They are waiting, resigned and contemplative.
