The Fears Series: Angel of Death. Jessica K Photography

When researching for this project I set up a survey and posted it out to the wonderful people on my social media pages. I asked people what their fears were and if they knew where the root of the fear was. I expected to get back lots of spiders, sharks, the dark etc... Which sure enough I did, but I also recieved a lot of responces where that persons main fear was Cancer. 

This did take me back, because I hadn't put much thought to it. When I was deciding what topic to shoot first for this series I originally thought it would be something visually frightening, something violent and hauting but since this had stood out from so many people I believed that it was right for the first image. 

Inspired by stories from the people I interviewed and the people who responded to my questions, this is my depiciton of the Angel of Death based on the fear of Cancer.
