Where They Wait for Me

Stella Kalinina | Ukraine


Where They Wait for Me is a poetic meditation on my memories of growing up in the Soviet Union in the '80s and early '90s. The project is about loss experienced in migration and my inability to go back to a place and time. Having moved to the United States at the age of thirteen, I am overcome with bittersweet nostalgia during my visits to my extended family. The house in Ukraine where my grandma now lives is where I spent a few summers growing up. It is the closest thing to a childhood home that I have left.
