Gently Pass On By

‘Gently Pass on By’ is an intimate visualization of the life of my grandmother, who has been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease. A search for what is and what was.

Caused by a complete loss of short- and long-term memory, her behaviour changed, and her personality and identity have almost completely been lost.

Not only she, but also her surroundings have drastically changed. Home. A place that reflects your personality and life. A peaceful place disturbed by inner chaos and distrust. A trusted place you don’t remember. Isolated and confused.

Can I still find my grandmother in the small traces she leaves behind?
