Afsaneh Box I | 2014

This is an introduction to a three-part narrative about my aunt in which I show her departure from the home where she raised me.

The sequence began six months before Afsaneh's death when I took a portrait of her and my one-year-old son Faris in the chair below the portrait of my grandfather. As they moved to the side to play on the sofa, I noticed her imprint on the cushion and decided to make one more photograph.

On the 11th of August 2013, Afsaneh would suffer a stroke in that same room. Faris, my wife and I were with her.
