Erik lost his sight as a consequence of having diabetes type I since he was 6 years old. He described a quite frustrating process of losing power over his own body, how he was not in control anymore, how he became less and less independent and how he could not see his daughters grow up. I wanted to visualize the process of losing ones sight, therefore these photographs are based on what Erik told me.
