Rooted in the landscape of Southeast Louisiana, Wherever You Go, There You Are is about the duality of past and present. Tethered to the memories, experiences, and places of her working-class home of Detroit, Michigan, these Southern landscapes are grounded in a new sense of what home can look like, with reimagined purpose, and familial nostalgia for what once was. Novelist, photographer, and Southern native of Mississippi, Eudora Welty expressively wrote, “There may come to be new places in our lives that are second spiritual homes—closer to us in some ways, perhaps than our original homes. But the home tie is the blood tie. And had it meant nothing to us, any other place thereafter would have meant less, and we would carry no compass inside ourselves to find home ever– anywhere at all. We would not even guess what we had missed.”
