Photographer Melanie Parent is searching for home. Not the home she lives in now, but the home of her memories. She is looking for what is lost.
“The photography is helping me to grab onto what I can of these places, to hang onto something.” the Shreveport resident said.
In her search she brings us, the viewer, along for the ride. It is a journey into dreams, time and lonely roads. It’s a series of moments that the speed of life can make us miss, but that is what Parent makes us see.
