Falling into the Day

Falling into the Day (2009-present)

Falling into the Day is an on-going project about David Blackburn, an accomplished artist living with Alzheimer’s disease.
The photographs were taken over several years in David’s home, his studio and subsequently the care home where he now lives. What began as a simple character study of an eccentric man and his quiet existence slowly became a story about the confusion and alienation of living with dementia and the subtle ways in which the condition can manifest its self.
