In June 2010 a good friend was diagnosed with breast cancer. This sensitive and challenging photographic project is in response to her story. My aim is to try and express thoughts and emotions through a combination of text and the Derbyshire landscape.

The prints are at the picture framers and my artist's statement is written. We meet at Uni on Friday to begin hanging work for our exhibition. Very excited, nervous as well, but that's just me!

Once I know the exact time and date of our preview I can let you know, and if you are in the area do pop in and say hello.

Anyway here is a precis for you of the final chapter in this first series...

Silence 

Six individual weather-beaten statues of the same female are situated within the rose gardens at Hopton Hall in Derbyshire. There is no specific history behind them but to me they symbolise the changes my friend Tracy's body has gone through, as a result of six sessions of chemotherapy.

The text I have chosen to use is a poem written by her as she was undergoing her treatment.
