'Regarding Emma' is about a woman coming to terms with her illness. Emma was diagnosed with a brain tumour nine years ago. Back then she was dealt the news that she only had two years of her life left. Despite the traumatic event, she remains alive and well, long past the prognosis she was given. Emma presents herself, her body, as a form of self-expression. To cope with her illness, she uses tattoos and distinctive hairstyles, which offers her a means to escape, to form a new identity to help come to terms with her diagnosis. My work explores what it is to recognise and develop awareness of ones inner strengths. Emma stands and confronts her own personal challenges, ones that she must confront every day.
