Beyond Illness (2016)

Noopur loves to contemplate and daydream and, sometimes, she writes on contemporary art practices. Her other interest is making photographic records of her surroundings with her camera and cellphone. Noopur was diagnosed with non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, a type of blood cancer, a couple of years back and has completely recovered from it since then. Recently, she decided to revisit the spaces with her camera where she inhabited during her long treatment.

    It is indeed brave of you Noopur to revisit these places and relive what I am sure was a most difficult time… the sequencing of the images is perfect! the essay conveys a journey from a sense of forbodding and a fear of the unknown to pain and uncertainty to waiting and hoping to believing and refamiliarising to getting out and freedom! love you so much!!!
