“H” is the attempt to build a private geography. Starting with homecoming and continuing by following lines and paths away, with a need to show gone absences and find unexpected presences, the project has taken on a form of an intimate family album, in which the endless question is whether memory can become geography and biography can be autobiography. Images of damaged cars, empty beds, homeless people, refugees, hotels and hidden love coexist in an attempt to find an answer and a way home.
