RESILIENCE

In October 2020, I began documenting my father’s life.  During a tragical surgical mistake in a German hospital in 2016, he lost 70% of his blood. Not receiving transfusion by the careless staff during the incident led his nervous-system to break down. As a result, my father lost his eyesight due to severe damage to his optical nerve, and he lived as a blind man since then, trying to recover from his nervous system damage and adapting to his new life taking place mostly at home. As a computer scientist, what he missed most was being able to read and to code.

On the 8th of August 2021, my beloved father passed away unexpectedly.
