In 2011 photographer Hans Bol’s father was diagnosed with cancer. In response, he took his camera and began a touching and intimate chronicle of the elderly man’s gradual deterioration over the next six months, until his father finally passed away in the comfort of a hospice, no longer able to speak. Bol could not have predicted that he would end up making the series ‘White Crow’, or what would result from the process of inevitably saying goodbye to a loved one. Interspersed with pictures of his father are images of crows and ravens that appear frequently in Bol’s work. In this publication he views them as messengers of the gods, symbols of transformation and harbingers of eternity.
