It’s a story about my childhood friend with his new friends that he met before
smoking a drug named nyaope. My narrative is about showing their lifestyle and
way of living in their everyday to day basis. I photograph them in their private
space showing the environment. Being with them made me feel welcome,
spending time with them showed me a different side to life (life of drugs) which
made me feel sad that my peers are doing wrong things that tarnish their lives
when there are better options out of drugs. Around their space there are
personal pieces that I photographed which mean a lot to them like the purple
dress next a picture, both sentiments are his mothers.
