From September to December 2013, I returned to my hometown to photograph it during my most peaceful time – the night. As I worked on this project for 4 months, shooting long exposures that took 5, 10, 20 minutes, I had a lot of time to think. This wasn’t what I set out to do, the essay that I wrote to accompany the imagery, was not my intent. But these are the memories that came back to me and these are the images that provoked me to reminisce about my childhood in Branford, Connecticut.
