About this image

This project, God Has No Favourites, is an intimate photographic document that explores our family’s response to my Mother’s terminal diagnosis of secondary brain cancer through until her death on the 17th August 2018.

The project in its nature was a therapeutic collaboration for us all and shows the intimate moments shared during this time. I hope that the images will reveal the loving complexion shared among our family whilst also exposing the struggles and pain caused by such an experience. Despite the subject being intensely personal, the images try to transcend this and speak of a more universal narrative about love, family, loss, strength and fragility that any viewer could understand.
