little by little, bit by bit (7)Posted: 23/04/2013
after a rotten night, my daughter has had a better day today.
the images below complete a series taken over the past week. the goal, to get her on her feet, outside. she’s taken a photo each day and created a piece of work for school – the first substantial piece of work since all this began in January.
i was skeptical that anything meaningful could result from a situation of such disabling pain – quite literally having to drag her to her feet, and then keep her upright when the pain buckled her knees. i was worried that the effort would pitch her backwards.
but she did it. she’s a brave kid, and i am very proud.
i think her images are remarkable.
