In reaction to my father’s death, I use the camera to describe my inner emotions. I found myself entangled in a complex web of emotions and reactions. I felt disorientated, as if I had lost my place and purpose in life. I was living in a different world.


The bodies represent myself.

I feel anxious, submerged – unable to breath, run over – aching bones, dissolved – losing myself. Am I trapped in my father’s bones, is this my inheritance? Can I regain my identity? Is a part of my dying with him? I am struggling with death anxiety, I acknowledge my own mortality, but deep down, I deny it.


Whatever I fear cannot be death because one has never died.
