From the photographer:

"Based on the story "A Conversation with my Father" by Grace Paley.

This one is for my dad, in a way. I incorporated the clock for two reasons. One, because in the story the narrator is sitting with her father who has little time to live. Another because I feel like I just ran out of time with my father since I moved away. I wanted to make this one more fantastic because in the story her father asks her to tell a story his way and she just can't do it. I wanted to be sleeping with the clock because even though I may have run out of time with my dad physically, I feel secure in the thought that he is always guiding me.
