In his website, there are words which ran “She gently squeezed my hand for the last time. Never again would I feel the warmth of her fingers. She passed away leaving her soul to me. I will keep my promise. Farewell my love.” in his photography project Shout (1984-1987) which was dedicated to someone called Rosa. The pictures in this series was all done in traditional darkroom and with no Photoshop involved.
