История с котом

Sohrab Hura.  Francoise the neighborhood cat. France. 2010.

Увидев эту фотография мне сразу захотелось узнать, какая история с ним связана.

Эта фотография индийского фотографа агентства Магнум Sohrab Hura из его книги Life is Elsewhere (точнее это первая глава проекта Sweet Life).
Летом 1999 года, когда автору было 17 лет, у его матери диагностировали параноидальную шизофрению.
Life is Elsewhere is a journal of my life, my family, my love, my friends, my travels, my sheer need to experience all that is about to disappear and so in a way I’m attempting to connect my own life with the world that I see with a hope to find my reality in it. Life is Elsewhere is a book of contradictions and of doubts and understandings and of laughter and forgetting in which I am trying to constantly question myself by simply documenting the broken fragments of my life which might seem completely disconnected to one another on their own. But I hope that in time I am able to piece together this wonderful jigsaw puzzle called life. And this journey will perhaps lead to reconciliation with my own life.

Вторая часть в цвете - Look It’s Getting Sunny Outside!!!
Over the years when my mother’s condition started to improve I started to photograph at home more. Apart from my mother the focus of the photographs also included her dog Elsa who had been her sole companion at home for many years and also the house itself whose condition deteriorated or improved as my mother’s illness regressed or progressed. Her relationship with Elsa which had substituted intimate human contact as simple as touch or conversation all these years, had played a big part in my mother’s improvement. In the late winter of 2014 Elsa died having grown old in her 13th year. That winter was a strange one because for the first time it had rained everyday and the sun wasn’t seen on most days. Towards the end my mother had even opened up to my father with whom she had separated almost 15 years ago. It was her separation with him that had triggered her illness in the first place.

Мне даже тяжело выбрать какие-то отдельные фотографии. Мне кажется, именно все вместе с текстом создают историю.
