"In unvarnished words and compelling imagery, Hochberg's subjects lay open the heart of grief and the creative acts of remembrance to which it can give rise. Here the viewer encounters the intimate landscape of parenatal bereavement in all of its diversity across gender, culture, and circumstance, joined in a comman purpose--to retain, rather than relinquish bonds forged in love."
