Matthew Trapp

February, 2020 Bournemouth. As part of my series ‘Hidden In Plain sight. Emma suffers from PoTS (postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome) an invisible illness which effects her life. “it’s annoying I can’t just be normal” While I focus on the fragility of life and the connection between love ones, I try to find the ‘normal’ in our lives.

March, 2020. Home, Bournemouth. While I’m still young my parents grow old. I felt it was essential to document my dad who had been diagnosed with prostate cancer. This made me realise the connection with your dad is something that can’t be recreated, and our time on this planet is short. It made me question the fragility of life.
