In the series Woodbine, Jonathan Schechner is processing his sense 

of displacement from home.

Schechner moved to Vermont from Israel as a teenager in 2005, and still faces a lack of clarity as to what home is for him, and where it might be. 

“Woodbine” is the name of the street Schechner emigrated to and where his family still lives today. It is also one of the plants he used to sketch in the woods near his house in hopes of finding grounding during his teenage years.
