Horváth M. Judit Private Pictures

I had started to take photos of myself a few years ago
when I was healthy.
Then one medical check-up revealed
that I had cancer.
I was operated on and then, for half a year,
I underwent chemotherapy treatment.
When I was physically unable to take photos,
my family photographed me,
just like I would have.
Our culture cannot cope with
neither death, nor dying,
and not even with the acceptance of any disease.
However, finding out that one has cancer
is not necessarily equal to a death sentence.
I took photographs of what my immediate surroundings meant to me:
my body, people, animals
that I love,
photos that I collect
And that one day I leave behind.
