FADING AWAY

Fading Away deals with the symptoms of dementia through the use of old family photographs of Nix’s Grandmother, taken by her grandfather. The work aims to communicate the sense of fragility and fading that erodes the personality of dementia sufferers. The photographs show how full of life her grandmother once was and how this cruel disease has caused that person to fade away in front of her family’s eyes.
