Verna Peterson Todd’s exhibit We Left Home, began as a way for her to know her quiet dad more deeply. Exactly 100 years ago, her father emigrated as a 17-year-old from the Swedish area of Finland to Hoquiam, Washington. From family photographs, her dad’s diaries and stories, trips to the old country, and elderly family members’ remembrances, Todd has created a photographic history of her father’s journey. Her series also explores the influences that shaped the man he became – folk culture, history, religion, immigration issues and family tragedy.
