Nephews has been more than 10 years in the making and is the result of a collaboration between the artist Fryd Frydendahl and the two young boys her sister left behind upon passing. What started as a need to fill her own void has turned into a communication across geographic and emotional barriers’ while turning into a "document of time and a family story about growing up". In collaborating, the three of them have renegotiated a tragedy that could have very easily set them all adrift. They chose each other, instead. The images speak for themselves, and the work is overwhelmingly generous.
