About the Book
My photographs are inspired by the suffering from cancer of three close friends.When I heard about their illness, about their fear I noticed that pain and death were so close to me. These photographs were born of my agony. I hope the sense and emotions can be found through my photographs.
Focusing on small close-up details of the world around me, my photographs appear semiabstract, emphasising colour, shape and texture. My choice of natural elements such as water droplets, the veins of leaves, snow and ice formations, and sometimes man-made materials, is transformed by light and shade into suggestions of the microcosmic world of cells in the body or of surgical procedures.. Some are suggestive of the dark emotions surrounding illness, while the vivid colours of others allude to diseased tissue, medicine and even the signs of hope for recovery.
