Self portraits on cancer chemotherapy.
“I feel like Vietnam. They use chemical warfare on me. My illness attacks and colonises. It makes me shut up. My body talks louder than I ever could. … Everything remembered from my life is dear, touching and precious. … The past is at least safe, even though I didn’t know it at the time. Now I know. … What makes me feel strong? Being in love, and work. I have to work. … I want to live.” Susan Sontag (extracts from Regarding Susan Sontag)
