The Natural Order

With the series “The Natural Order” I show contradictions connected to our Western view on the final stages of life. Here I ask why aging and death are often talked about only from a philosophical or an imaginatively horror point of view; instead of dealing with the physical processes the body undergoes. Attempting to visualize what has become a taboo for so many people, I stage myself as a part of this process. Doing this is not only about creating a picture, but also about a mental experiment of my own mortality. The pictures show the stages of aging, death, decay and absorption.
