Nic Antaya (I, the photographer) poses for a self portrait in his room at his uncle’s home. Since I returned from studying abroad in Denmark to Michigan, I have been staying in the room that my 16-year-old cousin, Lindy, used to stay in before my aunt and uncle separated in 2018. Since 2018, my uncle has lived alone. Living here hasn’t felt like “home” until recently. It took a while to feel settled in. I’m not sure why I haven’t removed the letters from the door yet.
