'Touch me with your eyes' documents a friend’s journey through chemotherapy post Covid-19, but still in isolation. After observing the initial medical procedures, I began capturing portraits of the different stages. Collectively, this fulfilled the need to understand and process the feelings and experiences for the subject and the photographer. The portraits are complemented by the subject’s handwritten diary entries. In this series, I want to suggest that different perspectives must be considered to bring out the depth of a situation. In doing so, the use of stereographs (3D images) aims to transport the viewers right into the subject’s living space re-enacting feelings of discomfort and dissociation.
