Letter to my mother

Letter to My Mother by Branislav Jankic is an impactful look into the lives of mothers suffering from addiction in the United States. The photographic series and book was prompted as the artist’s response to the lung cancer diagnosis of his mother, a former prescription drug and alcohol addict. The painful news brought to light their affected personal relationship, and the artist realized that many other families who struggle with addiction, both past and present, must have been through similar strain and damage. Upon this realization, Jankic set out to find his mother, not in the literal sense, but through an emotional journey of meeting, photographing, and documenting 40 mothers, who had either achieved recovery or were in treatment, and their children. Published by Silvana Editorale, Letter To My Mother is available at Rizzoli Bookstore in New York starting June 17th. Proceeds from the book sales will be donated to the Alpha Home in San Antonio, Texas and the Santa Maria Hostel Drug and Addiction Centre in Houston, Texas.
