The slow and steady decline of the mind attacked by Alzheimer's disease first strips the world of its vibrant and distinct color.
A new gray universe appears, at times blessed with moments of clarity, at times not. Through the veil of this disease, life becomes a frustrating hazy blur of what was once so clear and familiar.
These photographs depict the decline of lucidity through images of blossoms and petals, my grandmother's passion and touchstone.
Shapes once so common become indistinct, almost menacing.
The clarity of nature transmutes into a foreign landscape --
but the beauty remains.
