In 2002, Leanne Shapton gave up her Toronto apartment, left her job, and moved to London where she lived in a small bedsit. The drawings in this book grew out of the acute homesickness she felt. Most of them were done from photographs taken of her close friends and surroundings over the previous five years, and of the new friends she was making in London. The book is a quiet eulogy about leaving friends, and home, and what we love about the photographs we keep with us.
