|COCOON by Jagna Olejnikowska|
Jagna wrapped me up in silver and gold gauze and first of all I sat on a couch and she photographed me from the front and then I laid down and she photographed me again but I was shaking like mad because the gauze was so constricting. The little hook of light which you can see on the right of the picture was a reflection of the sun through the window and, apart from the green backdrop, all the rest was created in post production by Jagna.
She wanted it to look like a cocoon which suggests a rebirth but one constricted by my disease. Ironically, having Parkinson's has given me great freedom but at the cost of being trapped inside a body which is slowly succumbing to the symptoms of the illness. But, who cares when I can get to meet and work with the likes of a wonderful photographer like Jagna?
