The Nicholas Project


Nicholas, son to Carolyn, husband to Susan, brother to Samantha, father to Alexandra and Sebastian, passed away suddenly on September 22, 2006 at the age of 34. In 2007, a duffle bag containing some of his clothes was delivered to me by Samantha. I started to work on this project in September 2010. Better late than never.

Nicholas, fils de Carolyn, époux de Susan, frère de Samantha, papa d'Alexandra et de Sebastian, est décédé subitement le 22 septembre 2006 à l'âge de 34 ans. En 2007, j'ai reçu de Samantha un sac contenant quelques-uns de ses vêtements. J'ai commencé à travailler sur ce projet en septembre 2010. Mieux vaut tard que jamais.
