Mi Abuela (my grandmother).

I do make a living on the wedding photography industry, but for me photography is a way to express myself, vision, art, joy, passion and other things. I do other kind of photography, that is for myself, the one that fulfill my soul and my life. This is where my grandmother steps in, she is 80 plus years old, and have alzheimer. Most of the time she doesn’t know anybody on her circle beyond my mother who takes care of her. It is very painful to see a loved one lose all her knowledge over time. She talks about her past most of the time, her parents (I didn’t knew them) and call us by other names besides our own. Some times she makes us laugh by things she says and sometimes she starts to cry with no particular reason. I read somewhere that this is very particular because alzheimer patients gets frustrated when they can’t remember things that they should and  start to cry about this. This is not the first images that I take of her, had been a lot, but are the first to share beyond my family. I wish I can change things for good, because it hurt to see your loved ones suffer,  but that is beyond my power. I pray God everyday for her and gave thanks for all the wonderful memories that I have of her and to let me share with her a thousand more.
