Bittersweet is a series of photographs that are intimate, yet are not of the human body. This is an expired film I shot back in Saudi Arabia. I was away for almost two years, which is the longest I've ever been away from home. The bittersweet feeling of being back was a result of homesickness mixed with the recognition of reasons I chose to move away in the first place.
