AWOL at Vung Tau Beach is a project that aims to create new dialogue in my relationship with my father. The project explores the use (and limits) of contemporary documentary photography storytelling practices to construct visual letters to my father. A small selection of these letters are now shared with you.

The first section "sent letters" contains letters that have been specifically made and delivered to my father with the intention of collaborating with him. The second section "unsent letters" contains letters made in reflection to the first set of letters, the process they entailed, and the birth of my own son. These have not been delivered to my father.
