 Bio:

Photography is a representation of the world through the photographer’s perspective. The
technical decisions that the photographer intentionally or unintentionally makes tell a story about the subject and/or the photographer. For me, photography has developed into therapy. Through it I am able to escape from my worries and anxieties into another world. It is a way for me to express my feelings and desires in ways that I am not able to do through words. It is also a way for me to tell the stories of others that might not otherwise be told, and in this photo documentary I am telling the story about my Grandma Grace.
Within the last 14 or more years, my 90-year-old grandpa’s memory has deteriorated and for several years he relied on my 89-year-old grandma to care for him. She is now the partner making the decisions and guiding him in his life. Nearly four years ago, when I began this photography project, my grandma was the one deciding when my grandpa would eat next, when he would shower, helped him dress, remembered the next doctor appointment, etc… She took on the leadership role in the family. I have continued to tote my camera with me on visits with my grandparents to capture this transition and their continual love for each other. Through this photography project I have seen strength in my grandmother that I never recognized before. As my grandpa isn’t 100-percent the same man I admired as a child, my grandma is still the same woman, yet I now recognize her strength of character. I admire that she continued to live on the farm and take care of my grandpa as long as she was physically able. I also admire that she stays active, continuing many of the household and social activities that she had done as a younger woman. Because grandma didn’t get credit for the incredible work that she did as a younger woman, I chose to document her life in hopes to now provide her long overdue recognition. This documentary is an effort to ensure that her contributions to the world will never be forgotten or undermined by the equally reputable contributions made by men of their generation, “The Greatest Generation.” Over time, this documentary has also developed into a visual depiction of my grandparents love and dedication to each other in the last stage of their lives.
