IN CONVERSATION WITH VIN SHARMA
Photography by Vin Sharma
Interview by Karen Ghostlaw Pomarico
For Vin Sharma her photographic journeys evolve around her family. They are the inspiration that opens her eyes to see, excites her mind to think, and motivates her to create. Vin has made significant connections with her family, sharing intimate time together on a family road trip they took in the Summer of 2017. At that time Vin had no idea how this experience would give them the basic tools to manage as a family through a global pandemic.
Vin’s project THE GREAT AMERICAN ROAD TRIP is an intimate family voyage, examining the connections, as well as the disconnections made along the way. We asked Vin to share some of this work, to reflect the inspiration that drives her to create these lovely documentaries about her family.
“In the midst of winter, I found there was, within me, an invincible summer. And that makes me happy. For it says that no matter how hard the world pushes against me, within me, there's something stronger – something better, pushing right back.”
