Bone broth is a visual narrative capturing moments
of life and death found within the reunion and subsequent final farewell of a previously estranged mother and daughter.
After many years without contact, their relationship had become non-existent. A sort of living death. It was only through the news of a terminal diagnosis that they re-entered each other’s lives. Years of suppressed memories returned like a flood: relentless and all consuming. This publication documents an attempt to immortalise the final journeys; from the mundane trips between hospitals to getaways in the forest, and ultimately the last goodbyes with relatives in their village. The image are a reflection of a tensional gaze. And finally, it is the aroma of chicken bone broth, the last meal the mother could enjoy, that pervades all memories of these last months.
