Illustration of Life by Max Kandhola



In this body of work, Max Handhola photographed his father in the final stages of cancer, taking serenely abstract images of blood, urine, hair, and ultimately even ash, which form a counterpoint to the haunting final photographs made at his father's bedside, including the moments just before and after death. An intensely personal, honest and moving narrative. Library descriptions. No library descriptions found.

Max Kandhola decided to go back to Punjab after completing his project Illustration of Life (2002) in which he documented his father’s last moments of life, and reflected on issues within Sikh ritual, immortality and death. Over the last four years, he has visited the region as part of a continuing project to map family history through an odyssey of ancestral narratives, exploring memory, diaspora and identity. For him it is a land which is unfamiliar, yet it provides both a context and a beginning.

Illustration of Life is not intended to be a sentimental memento mori or a vulgar attempt to sensationalize death. It is a direct and inescapable visual narrative of the end of his father’s life and the artist’s preservation of his memory. This catalogue includes essays by Gary Hesse, Anne McNeill and Max Kandhola. British photographer Max Kandhola is a lecturer in photography at Nottingham Trent University School of Art and Design.

Spontaneous images Kandhola made of his father in the hospital and those made later, in the artist's studio, of the detritus of his father's illness. Illustration of Life is not intended to be a sentimental memento mori or a vulgar attempt to sensationalize death. It is a direct and inescapable visual narrative of the end of his father's life and the artist's preservation of his memory.

British Indian photographer Max Kandhola explores themes of memory, migration and Sikh diaspora through large-scale colour photographs of Punjab's many rivers and uncharted villages. In Flatland, Kandhola takes as his starting point the Sikh tradition of scattering ashes in running water to symbolize a physical reintroduction of the body back into the land. Returning to his ancestral homeland, he found himself in unfamiliar territory, yet informed by memories passed down to him through his family
