Passing Through is a snapshot of a family's holiday gathering in Trinidad and Tobago that invites the viewer into warm celebration and the rituals of food, cards and music. An ephemeral travelogue of moments that records a journey home using photography, haiku and prose revealing togetherness in a mother's hands, toes in sand and a dance in dappled sunlight. - Angie Driscoll
