This piece below – Dementia Has Dad – I made in 2017, shortly after our Dad had gone into residential care. These daft and disoriented thoughts were what we were left with as a family. Trivial and yet massive unknowns and worries; adjustments, anxieties. Shared at art shows, it’s opened up such sad but strength-giving conversations with strangers. So many people in this same situation. The little stuff that looms so large when dementia happens to families. I am grateful to have been able then to have recorded this in black and white.
