Endings is a small handmade leporello book, featuring details from ten analogue lumen prints. The book was created in response to the inability to process grief: as a response to the sudden admission of my father to intensive care in October of last year. These fragile lumen prints were created using clippings from his garden; their details are faint, almost disappearing. The work was produced as a means of catharsis; the prints were created during moments of overwhelming grief and uncertainty.
