My project, In The Still, is a photographic exploration of the inevitable, and universal experience of inhabiting an unwell body. In The Still focuses on my friend Siobhan who was a writer and lived with cancer for over 6 years. At varying points we have collaborated and made images together. Most recently using the radiotherapy mask that was made to treat her in 2019. I can’t remember the exact diagnosis and don’t pretend to offer these images as documents, rather the images presented are an emotional response to the physical limitations of the human body. And, a personal response to the bravery of a close friend. The work explores the waiting and helplessness that accompanies a terminal illness.
