Cold Storage

One thing led to another and I stumbled upon some negs from the documentary, In My Mother's House. This is the scene in which I open a working fridge that contained only empty glass jars and the carefully preserved bones of a turkey breast. And twenty some-odd years of freezer frost. I was shooting the scene and interviewing my mom at the same time. We both laughed so hard we cried.
