“Human” an on-going case study that examines vulnerability and emotional processes by way of referential possibilities of the body based on The Kübler-Ross Model, commonly known as The Five Stages of Grief, a model that was introduced by Elisabeth Kübler-Ross in her 1969 book, On Death and Dying. .
In this study, I’ve requested that my subjects explore his/her progression in the grieving process without the use of facial expressions. In hopes to help "normalize" natural human coping processes, this photographic exploration invites a human connection between audience and each stage of grief or trauma.
