“Homecoming”

In March of 2020 I returned to my hometown of Lethbridge Alberta.


Originally my plan was only to spend a week to settle my Mom on her return from wintering in Yuma. It was the beginning of the COVID pandemic. That week became a year. My Mom’s health declined, and she passed away in April of 2021.


During that emotionally powerful period, I took time to revisit places from my childhood and photograph them. It provided an opportunity to reconnect with the past, but also give me a brief respite from the present.


Homecoming is a selection of images from that time. The act of making these images reinforced the importance of home, family, and history. It was both a creative process and, perhaps more importantly, a therapeutic one.


This body of work is dedicated to my Mother, Doreen Lillian Taylor: 1930-2021.
