My father passed away due to mixed causes. Since and during his passing I started taking pictures in an effort to understand what was happening both to me and to those around me. I may have lost a father but I was able to re-connect with a branch of my family I had lost touch with. I may have lost a major part of my family, but I gained a new family. My father was a photographer in my youth taking pictures at schools, shooting weddings and doing press kits for bands. I wasn't of age to work with him on a professional level before he passed and hopefully this homage will bridge that gap. This project spans from hospitals to graveyards and barbeques. It is still a work in progress. The sections of this project are as follows:

Now: The hospital while he was passing, the funeral, when I went to his house to help clean up

After: Me re-visiting places we used to go and doing things we used to do.

Family: Documenting events with both my new found and already existing family members

Versions: His images and mine, me attempting to re-shoot his

I am still figuring this out. While the order is pretty set there are still missing images that complete sequences and whole sequences that don't exist yet. Any and all comments are welcome.

Hope you find my journey visually pleasing,

Azikiwe

I'll Be Seeing You Soon
