Book description:This book uses images taken over a 13 year period to explore my journey as both husband and photographer trying to understand my wife’s illness.
I started photographing Zara when we first met. Images of nights out, eating and kissing were soon joined by images of flare ups and hospital visits. Her conditions join us as silent partners in our relationship with each other, and our wider world.
The book is a tribute to life and love, reminding us that there are opportunities in the midst of life's difficulties.
