Some like to describe their work, and some don't. The former hope the viewers of their work can better interprete them with their original intents, the latter let the viewers come to their own conclusions which may or may not be the same as their own. It is very much a personal (or subject) choice. From the viewers'perspective, I'm sure we all have favorite songs with lyrics that we cannot decipher.
For this body of work, I think a photo essay would work well, e.g. a web page combining text and images that tells a whole story.
I must say that I admire your courage for such a project. I, for one, certainly don't have the stomach for it. Keep up the good work.

Ok, I was told that my previous photos had too much of an explanation, so here are two without any text. I wish to hear comments on them.
