The Reactions To The "My Fathers Last Days" Pictures

Thinking back now the day after, on some of the reactions to the pictures. At least one person cried on viewing the pictures, many others could not look at the photos as they were too strong for them (especially the older viewers, closer to that reality?). 

The emotional reactions to the work, make me feel I am on the right track. The worst kind of creative art is that art that people have no reaction to, it is the art that is like wallpaper than blends in and easily dismissed and forgotten. You want people on seeing your work to be pulled into it, to love it, to cry, or to be repulsed and afraid of it. When your on that emotional reaction path with the viewer you know your doing the right thing.
