Not long ago, Molly Hatch was visiting one of her aunts for a family gathering. “I explored her home for the first time, room by room, and when I found myself in her living room I suddenly had the feeling of being at home.

Hatch was gripped: determined to discover more about her family, by understanding the objects from its past.
