Summary: half life: a portrait of Lauren, focuses on the life and suicide of a close friend and my relationship to her. The project is comprised of photographs and collected writings that Lauren and I shared throughout the six years we knew each other, and photographs and documents created now, after. Having been confronted by a haunting absence, I want to make evidence of her with my photographs.
