The Visit
Selenium-toned gelatin silver print, Edition of 5

16 x 20 inches

From the series: Widelux Summer

My mother was diagnosed with Alzheimers' Disease in l998.  I moved home to care for her, and documented this journey with her in many formats.  Photography provides both expression and distraction during a daunting time.  We put to rest many differences and let go of the past and truly spent much quality time together, and it goes on.  This series is titled "Widelux Summer" and covers a range of situations, from suburban life to Ground Zero to Nat'l Socialist Party Rally in Valley Forge, Pennsylvania.
