Abstract / Summary

Mourning, as described by Freud, involves a process of shuffling and rearranging; examining and re-examining; taking each memory and looking at it from as many different perspectives, from as many different angles, as it takes for the process to exhaust itself. We meet each memory, each hope, and face it without that person present. Our internal world is in the process of rewriting itself. Remembering prolongs the existence of the one lost. The Last Photograph examines mourning and loss through the lens of a microscope examining human remains from the perspective of artist and mother.
