Photography and Story by Brenton Gieser
Hundreds of papers sat neatly stacked atop Eva Hart’s bed in her small SRO unit at the Elk Hotel. The papers serve as evidence for a lifetime dedicated to searching for what has been lost, her identity. As an Army Vet, Eva faced complications with her VA and medical records upon leaving the military. Although the issue with her records and thus her identity remains unresolved today, the pursuit of a resolution has led to the development of a whole new identity for Eva, as the woman out to find herself.
