A photographic study by Kois Miah

Mangled is a response to two seismic events – the global Covid-19 pandemic and the resulting national lockdown in March 2020; and the second being the loss of photographer Kois Miah’s dear friend Jobeda Ali to cancer in April 2020.

Using an analogue camera, slowing down from the normal working pace, these environmental portraits are a reflection of our human relationships and the connections to life and death. They are an emotional response to the national lockdown that induced and exacerbated feelings of loss, grief, isolation, anger, sorrow, and eventually optimism, hope and renewal.
