In I Still Do , photography performs a several functions—to crystallise the trace of loss, to extend the moments of togetherness and also to provide support to those left behind after the death of the other. The photographic act in this project, I argue, gestures love and care towards the other, and the photographic image solidifies this gesture. The photographs and the accompanying text attempts to build a dialogue, gesture love and explore the echo in between the relation with the other.
Photography, whilst also pointing to something that is left outside the frame, provides a space where the relationship between Fox and her husband can be played out; it provides an opportunity for intimacy. Relationships amongst partners can be fragile and vulnerable, and vulnerability is intrinsically linked to intimacy.
The loss of the other, or the loss of something within the other, results in exposure of oneself, characterised by a wide range of emotions, such as grief, guilt, anger and fear. The photographic essay deals with illness and love, which are considered as private expressions. However, photography transfers the personal into the public, therefore seeking new forms of collective outcome. Viewed through the lens of public activism, the photographic essay creates a counter-statement of visual stigma and expand the understanding of lived experience.
The project also resists conclusion; the photographs provide continuity. The space that opens up between the image and the text, as well as in the photographic act itself—between the photographer, the subject of the photographs, and viewers—presents the possibility of dialogue that has a transformative potential.

Photographic essays, as I have illustrated in this paper, create time and space between individual images as well as between text and image. These spaces that open up between the images and text as well as between the photographer, their sitter and the viewer of these works are critical in connecting different agencies and engaging with an open-ended dialogue.
