On March 20, 2011 Douglas Esteves passed away. Uncle Doug was my most distant uncle. Not really having him as a figure in my life I often found myself caring less about him until he was diagnosed with cancer. Once he was diagnosed and we became closer I was fighting with the fact that he did not have a prominent presence in my life. I found out he was a homosexual and that could have had a positive impact with my upbringing having someone help me through my coming out. Once uncle Doug passed I had trouble copping with the idea of not having him around anymore. I started a journal where I would write letters to him in hopes that would fill that void. This photobook is a mixture of my memoir, my photos and photographs he has taken.
