Anne// This project was an awareness campaign for Alzheimer’s disease. I wanted to show the harsh reality of what the disease is actually like and the distortion it causes on the brain of the victim. I used my Grandmother (who suffers of severe Alzheimer’s disease) as the subject matter of this project. I used scans from all of her old family photos and distorted them to create the effect of forgetting a person. I used photos from family holidays – to wedding photos. In one of the images you cannot see her own face, I wanted to emulate the fact that this disease has effected her so much she cannot speak, and I do not think she even knows who she is.
