Portrait of a Girl Through a Pandemic, 2021


‘SCUFFED. The whole thing is scuffed. There is no finesse to what I have presented. I never meant for anyone to see these images. A selection of selfies. Images taken fresh out of my first emergency mental health hospitalisation to when my hair started falling out. The train journey to the hospice to see a loved one for the last time and the morning she passed. Before and after counselling. My visit to St. Gobnait’s Well. A walk with a goat.’
