Blended Home

Christian Mushenko’s visual rumination on the notion of what home and family means to his 78 year old father.

My father has always lived in the country, but now at 78 finds himself living in the city, an integral part of his new family with his Chinese wife and her children and grandchildren. Their strength of family across the ocean and blending of West and East makes a rich home.

In his words, home is-

“Where I sit and contemplate my past with a thankful heart for the people I have loved, and what I have seen and done with my time on earth.

For a time, home was uncertain. After the death of two women in my life and now in old age, I met my wife to be when she spoke no English and I spoke no Mandarin. We fell in love with each other looking into each other’s eyes! Home is here together.”
