Goseong Choi submitted this powerful image to the Mother’s Day post and I wanted to know more:
Umma, Korean for “Mom: is a recent series of photographs witnessing a dramatic family event, my grandmother’s passing. When I was in Korea photographing in January 2011, I was taking intimate domestic pictures of my family in their daily lives. Then I went to a small village where my father was from and was photographing the rural life there when I got world that my grandmother had had a stroke.
She was in a coma for three weeks, and at the end of the third week, she died. She is my mother’s mother, and during the funeral and its anticipation and aftermath, I was particularly aware of my mother’s grief and emotion. I felt her deep sorrow and fear. And I photographed the sense of loss. The work that I had already been doing about her daily routine prepared us both for my role as a photographer during this momentous time.
