Synopsis: On her 15th birthday Carrie Levy was waiting at home in hope for her father's return. He didn't make it. At the time he was being sentenced to prison for four years. Here she charts the years of his absence from their lives through her camera, as the void he left is filled with memories and reminders of him, compounded by his absence, from the empty garden, to the road trip to the prison five hours away.
About the Author: Carrie Levy is from Syosset, New York. When she was fifteen her father went to prison for four years, and Levy began to photograph the banality of her world without him. Five years later her work, redolent of waiting and loss, was published as 51 Months by Trolley.
