Visceral Memory 

I wanted to discover the connection between emotion, sensation and the past. I grew up with my grandpa telling me endless tales about his life down to what he ate for dinner with my grandma in 1954 after their trip to the mountains. His storytelling dwindled away with the deterioration of his memory. The day before Thanksgiving in 2018, his mind was particularly clear and I asked him again to divulge all he could collect about his childhood. I found there to be a strong connection of sensory detail to the memories he could recall and so I attempted to find the places he could recollect in Langley, South Carolina where he grew up.
