This picture was inspired by my visit to a hospital to see my mother. She was very sick, and I rushed bouquets of flowers to her room until my flight arrived there the next day. As I walked in, I saw the flowers placed all around her bed, the whispers coming from all the machines, her asleep, and the fragility of life everywhere.
