GOODBYE MAMA

Loss is a painful guaranteed experience, whether it abruptly slips through our fingers or is a slow, drawn out process. Photographer Danny Lim & film-maker Kao Cheng Kai, Goodbye Mama explores the complex relationship between a daughter and her passing mother. Shot in Louisiana, this piece takes us on a deeply personal journey and an impossibly difficult farewell.
