Goseong Choi


“Umma“, Korean for “Mom,” is a series of photographs witnessing a dramatic family event, my grandmother’s passing. Grandma had had a stroke. She was in a coma for three weeks, and at the end of the third week, she died. She is my mother’s mother, and during the funeral and its anticipation and aftermath, I was particularly aware of my mother’s grief and emotion. I felt her deep sorrow and fear.
