Documentary

Claudia's love for working with people has resulted in an ambitious project where she combined photography and working with people to create a beautiful documentary project. The project, focused on documenting five terminally ill people, has been overwhelmingly well-received and will eventually be combined in a concluding publication. incorporating a continuation of this first project. This second project will be the focus of a Masters Degree where Claudia will investigate how dealing with death and dying affects the family members.
