“Displacement” captures the traces of former WWII displaced person camps, combining past and present in a series of laser cut images on photographic paper. I am laser cutting plea letters the refugees were sending to the United States and Canada, into my photographic documentation of the former Displaced Person camps. My family’s displacement, which I am restoring in this body of work, is part of a long history of uprooted peoples for whom the idea of “home” is contingent, in flux, without permanent definition and undermined by political agendas beyond their control.
