This highly personal project was a form of psychological therapy for the photographer, who was triggered by the guilt of neglecting his parents. The photographer observes and captures the biological dilapidation of his parent’s bodies just as the house they have been living in. But while the house can be refurbished, there are no such options for the houses of the human souls. Through this project, the photographer, once in search of his own soul, had found it right at home, before his camera.
