A 14 nearly 15 year old and his vulnerability, against the overstatement of a yellow COVID world during lock-down. I took the opportunity to photograph my beautiful man-child son in what is a liminal space for him, and this alone has so many metaphors for what is happening in our society right now in such unusual times.
As a photographer and as his mum, I wanted to capture his moments of anger, loss and frustration, and acceptance when worn down. His clipped wings and the frustrations of lack of voice and I wanted to share the intensity and rawness of emotions. And I wanted the viewer to feel unsettled and uneasy, and but ultimately empathy, at being brought into a teenage brain and seeing a glimpse of his world during COVID 19.
