"A woman’s collection of over 100,000 photographs, taken from age 60 until age 88, when she died. The subject matter focuses on her hometown, gradually disappearing due to the construction of a dam. The photographer continued taking photographs with a simple vision — to leave behind something for her town to be remembered by. In looking at them, I am reminded of my own first, fresh ambition in becoming a photographer, while filled with emotion."
