Last Photo

On 5 December 2010, my late wife Mirjam attended Church for the very last time. She died less than a month later. This (on the right) is the last photo of her, to which I have applied a cubist effect. She remained seated throughout the service, and the Church emptied out -- then one of our working class members (left in the photo) stepped up to her with a bouquet of pink dahlias. She said: "These are for you, because I love you!" It had been too much for Mirjam, that last visit to Church, and the photo revealed how far her illness had advanced. Therefore I put it here with the cubist effect. I made only one true copy of this photo, and gave it to the woman with the dahlias.
