In Sickness & In Health

'In Sickness and in Health' forms the final stages of Colin Gray's 'The Parents' series. Begun in 2000, it shows his parents deterioration and ultimately his mothers' death.

The hospital and church visits became more frequent, the ailments more serious and the drugs regime ever more complex. Whilst his father struggled with his new role as a carer, Gray found that his photographs helped make sense of the deterioration and loss he was experiencing.

Having reached the age that his parents were when he started the project, Gray now sees their history in his own future.
