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.
