Content Warning: This artwork includes interviews discussing grief and death, including references to heart attack, cancer and suicide.
I've always been interested in conversations, and the big stories and small reflections that we don't have space for in our day-to-day lives. The first, Elly, I have never met, and found through a community Facebook page. The second, Kate, is one of my best childhood friends, whose mother passed away when we were young. And the third, a new friend, whose experiences I have had glimpses or fragments of, but otherwise would never have known their full experience. These are deeply personal and intimate interviews of loss, love and life continuing on - both the monumental and mundane, holding a space to speak about trauma and grief and the moments we don't often share.
Thank You to my interviewees:
Elly Wood talking about the death of her father Greg Wood;
Kate Gwyther talking about the death of her mother
And the third participant who would like to remain anonymous.
