“Underwater Rising” is a photomontage that envisions my late father’s journey back from the hereafter. We both loved the sea and when he passed away, I felt the need for mourning rituals but had none. I waded into the ocean to photograph the movement of the waves. This practice allowed me to reconnect with his spirit, express my grief and honor his life by creating seascapes. There I found inspiration for my photographic series, What Is Gone? What Returns?
