The core of my photographic practice stems from a place of pure empathy- a desire to share my story within the collective human experience.  My visual trajectory has always centered on the distant nature of my own family, and my desire to reconnect us. For most of my childhood our lives were scattered over countless households. My disparate memories of these places merely composed a fragmented idea of home. Later in life I began to question how my identity was shaped without a point of origin. Photography provided a way in which I could eternalize these fleeting moments, a fiction entangled by my truth. As a way to cope with these feelings of isolation, I created a narrative hoping to connect these places and reunite my family. Through this shared experience, my family and I appear to search for one another within the various environments that divided us. As a result of our efforts to find solace and intimacy, I conjured a myth of a home; a sanctuary where my loved ones and I could finally belong. My photographs are relics of loss; traces of a family that I tried to piece back
together. www.racheljump.net
