Leftover and Removals
Leftover (2014) and Removals (2011–2013) are sister series that examine sickness.
In Leftover, photographs and a sculpture of used radiation therapy masks scrutinise the fear of sickness – both defined and undefined. The masks hold traces of the people who wore them. The series begins with realism and ends in dystopia.
Removals shows some of the most common diseases a few minutes after the surgical operations, captured in the corners of operating rooms.
In the book Leftover/Removals the photographs are accompanied with a discussion of three surgeons looking at the photographs while eating doughnuts.
