Durbanville

These were taken in Durbanville, a suburb outside of Cape Town. I got to spend the week with two very special couples. Zelda’s husband cares for her on his own even though she has very advanced Alzheimers, she is unable to speak or walk so he created his own system for caring for her carting her around on a trolley that is the height of her chair and her bed.

I then photographed Jeff, who is in the early stages of the disease. His wife takes care of them and is so kind and patient with him. He was very insistent on showing me his garden. Meeting these two amazing couples really showed me the power of love and seeing the devotion of these incredible care takers reflects how many people around the world sacrifice so much to care for their loved ones.
