I have since 2009 continuously photographed by my mother.
My mother was 87 years old when she decided to move back to her old childhood home in the middle of the forest. I photograph and try to discover parts of a relationship that has been lost. It is lost because of time. It’s about memory. What once was and now has changed. It is also about how we remember different things and how we desperately is trying to preserve these memories. I wanted to participate in someone else’s life for a longer time and through this perhaps discover things about myself. It’s about impermanence and death. I continue to take photos. There is a natural end to the project when my mother is dead. The images becomes a proof of both me and my mothers existence.”
