Colleen Lidz | New York NY,USA

Short bio…

Almost 9 years ago I was developing film and prints. Since then my photography has gone through many transformations of which subject or place I choose to document. For the past year I have been obsessively documenting my father’s mishaps with his eating habits and his ultimate life-long struggle with type 2 diabetes.

You shoot film because…

The issues I touch on and choose to document are very personal, yet they have one thing in common: permanence. Film is a permanent staple for me. It has always been there and always will be, just like this series of my father and his struggle with type 2 diabetes.

Your photography feels like…

A fly buzzing around your ear. At first, its okay. But it decides not to leave you alone so you swat and swat and swat but no luck.
