With my final major project, I wanted to create something which could help people, and could beĀ a personalĀ piece. Approximately 50,000 people have dementia worldwide, and it can cause families hardships, upset, heartaches and stress. It effects not only the person with dementia but their families and friends also. The concept of the book was to be able to explain dementia and help provide support by offering advice and presenting dementia in a different light. Through photographic manipulation and illustrations, dementia has come to life and can hopefully give families who have someone they love struggling with dementia, some support and understanding. It can also help others realise that they are not alone, and that support is reachable for those finding it particularly tough.
