Loss is something all too familiar for photographer Susan Worsham. Having lost her father to a heart attack at the age of 13, her brother to suicide at the age of 18, and finally her mother in 2004, Worsham has begun to fold these pieces of loss and love together through her work. Bittersweet on Bostwick Lane is an exploration of Worsham’s childhood home as well as her oldest neighbor, Margaret Daniel, who she describes as “one of the last remaining threads from my childhood and was the last person to see my brother alive.”
