mother's diary (for Kaya)

hand-bound diary / drawings - fineliner, watercolor crayons, crayons, 2017-2018

photos by Dani Tagen

 

My mum has plenty of photo albums - one from each holiday, one from each Christmas… When I am visiting my parents, we often look at the photos together.

I like to draw diaries. They are a bit like photo albums - they bring back memories.

This is a very special one.
It’s for Kaya.
To remind her how it was when she was growing inside me, passing through my body to this world and living as one with me in the very beginning of life
(as those things usually get forgotten with time).
