This is a series of photographs about my mother who suffered from Dementia for over 8 years. It is two years since my mother died and I still have great difficulty going through my photographs without feeling emotional.  Having taken dozens of photographs of her, I wanted to work with them but at the same time using my mother who could not consent to the photographs, made me feel very uncomfortable.  In the end I decided to put photographs about her and her daily life as a homage to all she suffered through.  An acknowledgement of that devastating period in her life where all that she once was, gradually vanished.  For me this is a way of paying tribute to her, the tragedy of what has become of her in her final years of her life.
