Over the past few months I have been producing work for DEEP and JRF, to create some positive images of people living with dementia. To show that diagnosis does not mean disappearance, and to encourage conversation.
It is always a pleasure to spend time with people who are willing to put themselves out there as examples, when to do so can be uncomfortable, knowing it is for the greater good. They tell their story. They talk, educate, explain and campaign for themselves, for their families and most importantly for all who will follow. Both the people I met and the people I worked for are an inspiration.
