My parents went on a raod trip from Kansas ro California in the 80's. In 2010 we stumbled across all the old film in my garage. In 2011, I was a sophomore photography major at sva with no idea of what was going on in my life. I felt lost. And looking at these slides I saw how together my parents were and they were the same age as me at that time. It felt weird. Seeing the 20 year old versions of my parents and thinking about how much has progressed from their relationship: my brother, me, our house, our lives. It was an overwhelming feeling which I find difficult to explain. But the slides inspired me nonetheless to embody myself in their trip- go to the places they went as a ghost of the future daughter trying to say "Hello, I am here, I love you, and you haven't met me yet."
