Demystifying Ruth is the result of my thesis research in which I delve into the memory of my paternal grandmother Ruth, a woman who was a complete mystery to me for most of my life.
Through investigating her memory, I sought out to understand the greater cultural context of sharing family history and its complicated relationship with memory and the photograph.
The end result of this research is the creation of a website in which I talk about perspective on Ruth's life and the process of using photographs and memory to define a person that you have never met.
