There is a beautiful revolution going and I am super excited to have been invited to be part of it.
The Kiss – an online exhibition
“Kiss me and you will see how important I am.”
The Unabridged Journals of Sylvia Plath
A kiss is a powerful expression of love, affection, peace, respect or friendship. In Hindu Vedic Sanskrit texts kissing was described as inhaling each other’s soul. Kissing is an expression of connection between humans. This human pleasure and joy is experienced everyday by people living with dementia.
It is a very personal project for me and every time I’m invited to photograph for the Kiss, the old saying ” I wish I’d known then what I know now” comes to mind. My grandmother lived with Alzheimer’s disease. At the time my understanding of the disease was so limited that I only saw the disease and not my grandmother. If I had my time again, there are so many things I would do differently but the most important thing I’d do differently? I would see my grandmother first and not the disease.
