words by Laura Alvarez
‘ in 2015 my husband Evan decided to focus on his mother’s hands for a photo series. I met my mother-in-law when I was only eighteen years old. Since then we have enjoyed almost thirty years of “family-ship”. We have laughed, feasted, traveled and even worked together. We watched my children grow together.
Called an angel, a hero, a leader, an artist, and a great storyteller, she now lives mostly in the present. We’ve taken this journey with her through darkness and light, always with the same goal – acceptance and peace. Acceptance and Peace.’
