Montana Rakz is a professional photographer he makes his living from fashion photography . This curious young man who takes the potential of photography to the limits, gives us a self-portrait of great but unintended originality. Last year when undergoing a very risky medical treatment over a 98-day period, this young photographer took a picture each day of something that came along with—or alleviated—his pains. It wasn't really a photographic project in the strict sense of the word, and the images are of this, that, and the other thing, some in color, others in B&W, with some attempting graphic research, others dealing with objects, spaces, faces, the sky or some other feature of nature. Put side by side chronologically, along with well-worded captions, brief or explicit, they build an account that leaves us wondering , but we can’t help see that it was vital and driven by necessity.
