About the Book
This book is dedicated to my father, Jan Bouwe Eberhard, and the people he loved and cherished. I have recorded the last months of his life, starting from just before his first serious stroke on my birthday, November 19th, 2011, until his passing on January 22nd, 2012. This is where his final chapter begins. Some of these photographs may be percieved as confrontational. I tried to capture mundane situations, intimate moments, painful struggles, laughter and tears, and all else important to me at the time, as well as some photographs taken by my sister. As it is now 2 years after his passing, the time felt right to finally put pen to paper and honor my father and everyone close to him with this presentation of his last fight on this earth.
