Episode 01 — The Center of the Gift

Synopsis: Host Anastasia Campos responds to the prompt, "when was the first time you deeply felt?" as an entry point to understanding her body of work.

I once heard Maurice Sendak, illustrator of Where The Wild Things Are say that for him, "the needle is stuck in childhood." Me too, Maurice. The themes in our work revolve magnetically around the themes of childhood. My impulse to photograph families comes from a seed that until now was felt but unintelligible to me. Prompted by an exercise in the Teethkiss Workshop by Yan Palmer, in this episode I follow this question around the room of my childhood home: What is the center of the gift?
