This photograph is part of my long-term project ‘Amore Tossico,’ which is not just a photographic portrait of Jo, her relationship with the men in her life and her dependency on drugs and alcohol but an account of the perils and complexities of women like Jo face who struggle with drug and alcohol dependencies, had experiences of sexual abuse and are forever on the brink of homelessness.

My image of Joaquim and Jo has been selected for the Kuala Lumpur Photo Award 13.
