All of My Life is a particularly personal series from LA-based photographer Danielle Spires. When Danielle first sent through the images, I was both honoured that she wanted to share such a personal piece and also very moved. This series shows just how powerful photography can be as a form of expression and communication.
“All of my life, I’ve struggled with how to talk about my debilitating chronic illness. I’ve tried to make a life full of surgeries and hospitalizations palatable to friends and family, but I’ve never been able to regale the memories and nightmares seared into my brain. I replay them like a film, they haunt me and simultaneously give me life. I decided to do something with those memories, and I shot some of my more grotesque stories in a cinematic way, complete with Cinemascope cropping. This is my life story”:
