Soon forty

Soon forty. Portrait photographer Oxana Prikhodko

I’m almost forty and I’m scared.

I’m afraid of old age, withering, Alzheimer’s, death. There are changes in the body and psyche that I do not understand and do not control.

I put fear, anxiety and anxious expectation in images created based on horror films that I have loved since childhood.

I’m going to be forty soon and it’s inevitable.
