it may as well be
by Anna Archibald


from the author: “This book is a dialogue between my mother and I, 20 years and 5,000 miles between us. At the time of writing it, I was extensively collecting photographs, yet few of them made it into the original printed version of the book. I use this process of acquiring found images as a tool for illustrating my own family’s history, considering what separates our ancestors from strangers.”
