Art allows us to explore different realms of our emotions and dive into our inner unconscious.

When photographer and feminist writer Jo Spence found out she had leukemia, she sank into a suicidal depression overnight and decided to createThe Final Project” as a way to cope with living with both a mental and physical illness.

The Final Project explores her last days of living. Spence eventually died in 1991 after a long battle with cancer and her project lived true to its name. She captures the essence and symbolism of what it feels like to be dying in a hauntingly beautiful way.

Her project is now being exhibited at London’s Richard Saltoun gallery until March 25th.
