This research project uses photography as an analogy to look at death and lament from a non-Christian perspective. Where religion sees death as infinite, transcendence from the limits of mortality, in a largely secular society such as Australia, death is the ultimate limit. I examine the arbitrariness of death, and then the personal loss of my father. I then investigate my relationship to death and my mortality, whilst using lamentation in my performative photographs.
