I was diagnosed with prostate cancer in June 2014 and decided to have my my prostate removed. After the operation in September I decided to document the process by creating a visual journal which records the various stages from the diagnosis right through to the post op. The book is handmade, painted and with various collages. I even put staples in to simulate the closing of the incision. I found a box which I painted and then added the graphic of the prostate with the uretha passing through it.
