the surface of days
In 2011 I began to document my mother as she underwent treatment for bone-marrow cancer. As the initial threat began to retreat and our fears as a family became less immediate, the focus of my attention also shifted. I now needed the images to serve a different function and to stand as more than just documentation. These photographs mark the beginning of a collaborative endeavour between myself, my brother, my mother and my father that I hope to continue for many years. What started as a project about an illness has become a body of work about my family.
