Returns // Returns 3–All About Olga

Returns is an ongoing collaborative personal project of Gabriela Bulisova and Mark Isaac that has been created in the small Slovak village of Chl’aba over a period of ten years. Chl’aba is the hometown of Gabriela’s mother, Olga, and this chapter of Returns focuses specifically on her. Olga grew up in Chl’aba but lived elsewhere in Slovakia for many years. After she and her husband retired, they moved back to Chl’aba to begin a new chapter together. Following the tragic loss of Olga’s husband, Pavol, from a sudden heart attack, she is still acclimating to life without her husband of 49 years.
