The Colours of the autumn of life
The collection of pictures captures emotions of two women living far away of each other while sharing similar experience of lonely widows in their 90s. One of the woman is my grandmother, the other woman is a grandma of my friend.
There is more similarities than just the age and loneliness. Both of the women had a child and both of them faced an alcoholism of their chidren.
Taking photos of my grandmother became a mean of communication in between us. Having family member suffering from alcoholism or another drug addiction usually complicates the relationships. Grandmother's daughter - my mother - was an alcoholic. It is hard to keep relationship clean without blaming each other etc. But we have managed it through my passion - the art of photography.
