About the Book
The photographs are brought to life using traditional Haiku poetry that was constructed with photographs taken with the mother and son alongside the authors ideas within a regular team effort. The author has also now had recent tragic events in his own life, involving harassment and abuse which brought on through misinterpretation and assumptions by people and he cannot get any help. The last stop is a touching but astoundingly extraordinary piece of work telling the true story of death and betrayal within society for the modern language photography reader. It works together as a set of 4 books with 3 other titles called Strange, The gift, and Omens of murder.
