|Doña Iris, by Solson Scherman|
Behind the Image:
The photo was taken on the occasion of Doña Iris' birthday. She's the Grandmother of my best friend, and suffers from advanced Alzheimer's disease. At the time of the photograph she believed she was 10 years old, and no longer recognized her son (hugging her). His joy is seeing his mother happy, hers, was the cake and presents. That's kind of what family is all about, trying to find the good despite the bad.
Thank you so much Solson, and thank you to all who participated!
