【WHEN I WAS ILL】攝影師Alyona Kochetkova的自身影像故事


“Meals became a problem. I realized that nutrition was important, but I had no appetite. Even my favorite food seemed tasteless and made me nauseous.”


俄羅斯攝影師Alyona Kochetkova

在2017年7月確診患有乳腺癌,她決定將相機對準自己,記錄自己身體在患病、治療的情況。


“The diagnosis was unexpected. I feared the uncertainty, and my anxiety was growing.”


作為一名攝影師,她習慣於用相機拍攝除了自己之外的事情,當被確診時,她覺得是時候記錄自己了,她不想只是記錄一個令人恐懼的故事,而是想創作在視覺上讓人醒目的影像,這將有助於打破人們對於癌症患者以往固有的偏見,也讓人們可以更好的了解面臨疾病,患者的生活狀態,同時,她也希望自己的故事可以激勵其他癌症患者順利走出病痛困境。


“Losing your hair is painless in itself, but it is very hard to accept emotionally. I was irritated to see the new “hairstyle” and a swollen face.”


Alyona表示:“對我來說這是非常困難和私密的故事,儘管如此,我願意向盡可能多的人講述這些。同情和同理心喚起我們對親友的愛,這樣的愛永遠不夠。同時,這是對那些患病,並且可能因無法訴說自己的感受而感到孤獨者的支持。此外,我拍攝這些組圖,通過從事我喜愛的事情來避免內心崩潰,接受這樣的考驗並活著。”


“Insomnia, nausea, tightness of the chest and headaches stepped up the mental tension.”



“I was tortured, just like many others, with the question “Why did it happen to me of all people?” A simple answer cannot be found. It is crucial to turn to religion not in search of a cure but to realize that a disease is a test. And it is a valuable part of life that teaches a lot and gives you the motivation to change inside.”


就像許多其他人一樣,我遭到了“為什麼在所有人中發生這種事情?”這個問題的折磨。 至關重要的是,轉向宗教不是尋求治療,而是要意識到疾病是一種考驗。 這是生活中寶貴的一部分,它可以教很多東西,並帶給您改變內部的動力。
