Dad with Stage Four Lung Cancer
In April 2014, I took a photograph of my father, who was visiting my house in Kamakura.
A doctor had recently diagnosed the 83-year-old with stage IV lung cancer but I hadn’t told him yet.
I remember that..
It was the first time I took a photograph of my father when I knew a secret about him, which he didn’t know himself.
Over the next three years I continued taking photographs of my father.
Each time I clicked the shutter I was sending a quiet message to him:
"Please don't die, Dad.."
