A thought-provoking exploration of grief as a companion of love.

IMG_6741-2.jpeg

Crafted through narrative audio stories and documentary photography this project is a compilation of an audio documentary, interactive art exhibition, virtual exhibition, and photo book. These will include photos and audio Navin has collected over four years of working with families and staff connected to Hummingbird House, Queensland’s only children's hospice, which provides care and support for babies, children and young people with a life-limiting condition and their families.

 

My Little Sunshine, the audio documentary, carries personal narratives of two Hummingbird House families. It documents their incredible strength and resilience through their journeys and experiences with grief, joy and loss.

Coming Soon
