「Life is Elsewhere」に次ぐ、Sohrab Huraの自伝的色彩を持つ写真シリーズ”Sweet Life”の最終チャプターとなる本書は、前作同様に母親、そして彼女にどんなときも寄り添っていた飼い犬のElsaを軸に進む。やはり「Life is elsewhere」と同じく、Sohrab Hura自身によってデザインされ、サイズも同一となるこの二つの本はコンテンツ的にも外観的にも対となるよう形作られている。ハードカバー。限定600部ナンバー入り。新刊。Sohrab Huraによる直筆サイン入り。

Over the years when my mother’s condition started to improve I started to photograph at home more. Apart from my mother the focus of the photographs also included her dog Elsa who had been her sole companion at home for many years and also the house itself whose condition deteriorated or improved as my mother’s illness regressed or progressed. Her relationship with Elsa which had substituted intimate human contact as simple as touch or conversation all these years, had played a big part in my mother’s improvement. In the late winter of 2014 Elsa died having grown old in her 13th year. That winter was a strange one because for the first time it had rained everyday and the sun wasn’t seen on most days. Towards the end my mother had even opened up to my father with whom she had separated almost 15 years ago. It was her separation with him that had triggered her illness in the first place.(Sohrab Hura)
