Lost & Found - In Progress

Lost & Found

I just met my biological father for the first time since I was born. Family feud was playing on the TV in the background and the sun was beginning to set. It felt awkward to laugh, make eye contact, smile. Things that are so natural for me, for some reason, was so hard to do. It's strange meeting the person whose the reason for your existence but hasn't been there your entire life to see you exist in the world.

Through the use of still imagery and video, I will be examining the relationship and reconnection of my estranged biological father, Scott Newman, who I have been separated from since birth.
