All of us have stories that we carry with us. Our own stories, stories we've heard, stories we've lived with, and the stories that have been passed down to us. These stories shape us. They become a part of our characters.

The stories from my grandparents have become some of those identifying aspects in my own life. As a part of continuing and sharing these stories, I will be spending summer of 2012 in Tallinn Estonia to create photographs of these experiences. Stories about their childhood, their life together, and the tumultuous times in their country before Soviet Russia took control of their government.

This project will culminate in a fine art exhibit in Orem, Utah and a book of the images and stories.

I appreciate those that will be able to support this project and help it reach its full potential!
