Summary/Abstract: In this article paper, the author presents her own experience of working as a photographer, using photography (or, more broadly, a photographic session) as an action that facilitates coping with the experience of loss. The article describes two types of bereavement sessions: the Memoir project and the Trauer project. In the first of the projects, the author took photographs and helped to conduct the session. In the latter case, she was both a performer and photographer. Both sessions had the intended effect and fit into the theoretical framework to which the author refers in the paper.
