‘Reality Trauma’, is a self-portrait photographic series I produced in March 2012 when diagnosed with stage 4b Hodgkin Lymphoma, a rare cancer and with a large tumour inside my right lung and chest wall, during my final year of a BA Photography degree at Middlesex University, London, England. I was forced to leave London and move back to my home town of Eastbourne in the South East of England. This is where I had weeks of extensive investigation in hospital and many lung biopsies due to my seriously deteriorated body and serious symptoms, while residing with family, before finally enduring 6 months of ABVD chemotherapy.
