During my first summer break I road tripped with my parents on a route we travelled numerous times in my childhood. The goal was to meet family in Wisconsin and to enjoy different locations along the way. Our loop starts in Northeastern Ohio and includes Michigan and the Upper Peninsula, Illinois, Indiana and western Ohio. However, this particular time was a more melancholy trip. We reached the specific destination in Wisconsin with the purpose this time to spread the ashes of our family who we visited so frequently in the past. These images are meant to be a childhood memory trying to be recreated through adult eyes.
