Gene captures the tender portrait of a man reflecting on his life prior to being placed in an assisted living community. He listens carefully to the world around him; sound becoming his way of documenting the days at Harvest Homes. Utilizing personal photographs kept and curated over the years, Gene finds inner peace with himself through his vivid and often sentimental narration. The resulting project adopts a variety of mediums and storytelling strategies between Gene, Jim Goldberg, and Nolan Calisch.
