"I am involved with eight mothers whose children have suicided. We worked collaboratively, each of these women placing their trust in me, to make their children less invisible. In a society where grief is hidden and suicide is still sometimes taboo, these mothers need to be able to talk openly about their children. I have recorded our conversations and collected images of each of the children and of the mothers. I have documented objects that remain precious to them, imbued with memories of that child and an earlier time. The 'Grave Sites' mark the places where the children rest. They are sites of rituals, sadness and guilt. In some cases a meeting place for the family once again."
