Thanks Waco

‘Thanks Waco’ is an exploration of self which interacts with familiar and unfamiliar places in Texas. As Eliza reexamines her home state, melancholic, confusing feelings erupt. Waco is a complex place with a complex history, evoking feelings of love, sadness, conflict, and isolation. After moving to New York, she began to recognise that she had lived in a small, sheltered town. Through the act of photographing, a personal visual narrative of Waco forms, which is conservative, utopic, oppressive, and home.
