My Name'S Not Alzheimer

  • Photographer
    Pietro Sorano

What moves this project is the will to transmit the intensity of a whole life going beyond the lost and confused looks, beyond the Alzheimer's, beyond the emptying of memory because the identity of the patient is not lost and replaced by the disease.Through the dialogue that took place during the shots and showing them some dear objects, their biographical memory was elicited, which produced a self-conscious grip. In each photo the moment of self-awareness has been captured, underlining the right of the sick to be recognized for the person who has been and who is even though.
