Summary

"Eight" is a new body of photographic work by Western Australian artist Christopher Young. It looks at end-of-life cultural experiences; how people respond to such experiences; and the environments and institutions they encounter. Utilising spaces such as hospitals, doctors' surgeries and funeral homes, it addresses the paradox of highly-charged, emotive events in seemingly sterile and controlled spaces. Eight is an ongoing series and it also includes anonymous interviews with people about their own end-of-life experiences.
