A mother and son's photographic journey through dementia
Artist Tony Luciani was testing out a new camera when his 93-year-old mother, Elia, snuck into the background of his photos. The spontaneous images that resulted sparked a years-long collaboration, with Luciani documenting his mum's life and spirit as she lived with dementia. In this touching talk, he shares the stories behind some of their favourite shots, capturing the joy and grief of caring for an ageing parent.
