From the artist:
I was in hospital at age 7-8 with a rare skin condition. I was kept in isolation in a side room next to adult wards, in a time when parents weren't allowed to stay in hospital with kids. So I was very much alone. Pre-safeguarding too. I was taken into (what felt like) a big, empty room by a man - nobody explained what was happening or told me who he was - I'd never seen him before; and photographed in my pants!
