Same Stream Twice

  • United States

My daughter’s name is Maya. I’ve been told that this word means illusion in Hindu philosophy. In 2001, I photographed her at six years old, spinning like a top around me. I realized that her childhood was not something I could grasp but rather – like the wind – something I could feel tenderly brushing across my cheek. Eleven years later, she allows me to film her once again – different but somehow the same.
