At the age of sixteen I was on the verge of death, due to extreme malnutrition caused by anorexia. The initial solution from an ill-equipped GP was a Geriatric ward due to the lack of proper provision for such illnesses. Visiting limitations caused extreme isolation and loneliness for both parents. The collective trauma from this period was never discussed and was a rarely revisited, unspoken time. The neutral space of the studio is used to explore the experiences from this period using the camera as a vessel to capture emotions. This process has allowed a greater level of understanding to be had for my parents in this situation and how hard they fought without recognition or real thanks.
