Help us care for families facing this disease, educate young people about living a brain-healthy life, and activate the next generation of Alzheimer’s advocates.

Humans of Dementia Winneer

This work is about the decline of my independent, artistic, funny Grandma Gorgeous (GG). Taking inspiration from a long line of photographers who have documented family members suffering from Alzheimer’s, I began this difficult journey. How is it possible that someone can live their whole life and suddenly have it ripped away in front of their eyes? How do you carry a conversation with the shell of your loved one? These images represent my ache to see her as she once was and also seek to honor a lifetime GG can no longer recall.
