Spontaneous images Kandhola made of his father in the hospital and those made later, in the artist’s studio, of the detritus of his father’s illness. Illustration of Life is not intended to be a sentimental memento mori or a vulgar attempt to sensationalize death. It is a direct and inescapable visual narrative of the end of his father’s life and the artist’s preservation of his memory.
This catalogue includes essays by Gary Hesse, Anne McNeill and Max Kandhola.
British photographer Max Kandhola is a lecturer in photography at Nottingham Trent University School of Art and Design.
