Last days of Ryochi and Hamako Yamamoto
Submitting photos of the final days of your parents to a photo contest? They are your personal memories. And your parents are no celebrities. Aren't you ashamed of yourself?--My inner voice kept saying to me. Why would I want to share my personal life with the rest of the world? Let me think. I force myself to come up with an answer. This series of photos is about the ending of one's life. Everybody will die someday. That's the universal truth. Yet we forget or try not to think about death in our busy everyday life. That's normal. I personally think it's more healthy to think about how to live than how to die. But sometimes it might be worthwhile to think about this inevitable destiny called "death". We all want to live until we die, don't we?
