This is my old grandpa. He is 75 years old and has dementia. He was always a really kind & gently person. But since 1 Year he lost himself. He get´s sometimes angry when he didn`t unterstand waht is happening around him, he forgets often what some of his nearest persons and has a small attention window. First when we wanted to start photographing him, he got angry but after 1 Minute after he understanded that he was photographed he was so calm and focused. We photographed him 30 min, and he was so calm and happy in this moments. I loved the moment, and he showed me that everybody needs sometimes someone who pay their full attetion to them and that is for this person a really good moment.
