"Quand on dit adieu…
When we say goodbye forever"
A journey through the darkness of the soul
To come out of a psychological trauma one needs to express the negative emotional experience which could be stuck deep within. Art can help extract it out from the dark corners of the soul and then reappraise the life experience.
I created this photo series when my lover suddenly suffered a schizophrenia crisis which broke down our relationship due to the disease and the electroshock therapy that induced memory loss and personality change in him.
After being able to express my bereavement by photography I found the force to move on. That was the beginning of the recovery from the several months long clinical depression.
