Will Harris - You Can Call Me Nana
Another very special book from Overlapse…so special, in fact, that it is a finalist in the Paris Photo/Aperture first photobook prize, 2021!
This book won't be around for long so grab one before it's too late!
1st edition published by Overlapse 2021
"A personal yet universal family memoir, this story introduces us to Will’s grandmother, Evelyn, who suffered from dementia in the later years of her life. As her memories eroded, history and fiction collided and a new relationship bloomed; once her grandson, the photographer became an old friend, creating this work while trying to make sense of a newfound connection and to deal with his own grief. At times both haunting and lighthearted, this book weaves together family archives with altered images, collage, and new photographs including views inside the multi-generational family home in Pennsylvania. Along with some confused and touching conversations with Nana, Will assembles the fragments that went missing from her mind."
