the faces of alzheimer’s
traveling photography exhibit

July 3-July 24, 2019

Ralph Waldo Emerson once wrote, “A man finds room in a few square inches of his face for the traits of his ancestors: for the expression of all his history, and his wants.” Looking at the face of an individual with Alzheimer’s, one might recognize the distinct glaze in the eye, or a familiar look of confusion or disorientation. These faces also show a range of emotions…

…through this traveling exhibit, it is our goal to not only display exceptional and poignant photographs of those affected by this disease, but to also bring about awareness of Alzheimer’s.
