Lost

Once the therapy starts and things become clearer, a lot of things change. For me it was accepting what happened to me as a very young child.

 

This realization came with a great sense of loss, I felt I had missed out on things in life and thought a lot about what could have been, if circumstances would have been different. Maybe I would have done better at school, maybe I would have enjoyed my life more or maybe I would have had kids.

 

No matter how bad you want it, there is no way to reverse time and do it over, it is what it is. Mourning over a lost childhood or lost opportunities is normal and healthy. Recognised them, acknowledge them and then go on with your life.

 

Lost is a set of 5 framed pictures of objects I found and photographed whilst travelling, seemingly insignificant but powerful within the context.
