transplant recipient

Without help from Bradley's mum this series would not have gotten very far.
I had major trouble getting in touch with people who have had a transplant because privicy laws stop me getting people contact info.
Katie put me intouch with the right people as she is very connected to the transplant community both in Canberra and Sydney!

Big thank you kaite

This is my little brother Patch and he has known to people of the transplant list. First me and then his dad. Patch really wanted to be apart of this project because his dad died waiting for a kidney. Patch is my inspiration on strength!

Dylan suffers from CF like me. He had a double lung transplant a couple of years ago. It was amazing to see the change in him, I haven't seen him since before he had his transplant and to see the change. Well that thought is now my happy place. Seeing Dylan again and hearing his story made me what to include text to accompany the images. In the end I chose to leave it out. Each person shared their story with me, and that gave me something and pushed me to go further with the project. I wanted to keep that special and see if the images could stand alone!
