CONNECTED TO SELF-LIFE AND RE-LIFE

"It doesn’t hurt! You get tired by every single physical effort, no symptoms, no pain. It’s an invisible disease, symptoms become manifest when you are already in an advanced stage, when you cannot turn back, so you try to get on with it and adapt.”

My name is Luna Coppola I'm 33 years old. I’m photojournalist at the same time chronically ill since 2004. In these years and especially in the last year, since the start of dialysis until the arrival of the transplant, I have realized that as a photojournalist had to tell this story. So, I started this project; I have chosen the technique of self-portrait to tell my story. Self-portrait as a way of participating in the story, as a new kind of story telling, as a way of self-consciousness. It is a way to deal with the fear you feel when something unknown is facing you.
