A deeply private challenge in regards to the brittleness of household ties within the face of recent life and dying by Los Angeles-based photographer and filmmaker Brandon Tauszik (beforehand featured right here).

Amidst piles of battered furnishings, unread books, stockpiled rest room paper, and expired medicines, Brandon paperwork the modern rituals of dying as he watches his father bodily grapple along with his grandmother’s belongings. Whereas private possessions are normally handed down via the household with a way of reverence, the challenge confronts us with a actuality the place no such emotions are discovered. “If we have been on the lookout for significance in these sealed packing containers,” Brandon states, “we discovered solely junk.” And but, regardless of the shortage of anticipated sentimentality, Brandon and Lowell do discover is a way of connection and catharsis — forging a deeper bond as father and son, and opening up a dialogue round legacies of psychological sickness, abandonment, and the remedial energy of affection.
