The human condition – ‘Confronting the fear of what the mirror cannot see’

This photographic self portrayal series explores the inner turmoil and anxiety of discovering my diagnosis of breast cancer. I have used nakedness to represent the overwhelming feeling of psychological and physical vulnerability and a feeling of being ‘stripped bare’ emotionally after such news. The darks at the edge of the picture plane threaten to creep inward, swamping my plans for the future and my world as I know it. The strong light behind represents the resilient life-force in me and all around me. It is also a reminder that life goes on, regardless of what is happening to the individual.
