"Thank you, kindly" is a culmination of work over the past year as a way to cope with and honor the death of my grandmother, Judy Scott. This project is for those who have lost someone they love. No one ever talks about grief or wanting to remember people, we all want to push through the pain. This project is full of pain and heartbreak and emotion and talking about the aspects of death and memories that are rarely touched. One of the last days I spoke to her, I asked if I could photograph her and we could tell her story together. She had a stroke a few days later and was never able to do so. One of my biggest regrets was asking too late, until I started this project. She and I were able to tell her story through memories and photos and I couldn't have done it without her. I was never able to thank her for everything she did for my family.
