I have always had a passion for photography and it is a medium I enjoy exploring with my projects and would love to continue as I progress from my studies. This photographic series was produced to accompany The Bookcase, a book which documents the livelihood of those living with and around dementia. The images are centred around the themes of vulnerability and the fragility of old-age.
My main focus was to capture photographs which eliminated portraiture, as I did not want the images to entitle a name nor hold any identity. The expression of loss and old age can be easily identified through the narrative of the images, with the focus on helplessness and the feelings often accompanied by elderly inactivity’s; as they require care and support from other sources.
