Findings contains four brief testimonies that provide limited access to the history of the family on my father’s side, who migrated from Palestine to Colombia in the 1920s. The piece is constructed as fragments of stories, drawn from everyday conversations, around the history of my grandfather’s generation. A visual exploration of archival photographs accompanies some of the testimonies.
