‘Isolation with Dementia’
by Amber Franks
‘Isolation with Dementia’ is a 40-day visual and written diary of my Grandmother throughout the first lockdown in March 2020. These portraits highlight how we navigate our surroundings and rely on ritual and habit to find threads of normality when under mental strain. Living with Vascular Dementia is an ongoing rollercoaster of emotions, ranging from moments of bliss to confused despair. Each photograph shows new perspectives of mine as my Grandmother and I re-identify with one another during one of the most challenging times in our family history.
