Little things (I missed you) by Adriana Ford
Photography, 50 x 50 cm
A photographic collage of eyelashes growing back after chemotherapy, represents the significance of the smaller impacts of breast cancer. These Little Things affect not only self-confidence from an aesthetic perspective, but also sense of wellness versus illness – the regrowth
of the eyelash signifies the body healing and the harsh drugs finally leaving the body’s system after months of suffering. The negative images, alongside the original, bring a brightness and emphasis to the humble eyelash - beams of light representing hope and recovery.
