Dutch photographer Alex Ten Napel visited a nursing home to shoot his latest project, a documentary series that focuses on Alzheimer patients.
Napel's portraits possess a certain polarity; though each photo is fascinating and delightful, there also exists an element of quiet sorrow and stifled desperation. The result is a captivating collection of images that you won't soon forget.
As Napel says, "Alzheimer’s disease shows us human existence without any decoration." The illness can be scary and heartbreaking, causing emotional anguish for all those involved. However, Napel welcomes the sadness in his work, trying to make sense of a chaotic and confusing time in a way that also accounts for the beauty and poignancy of the human existence.
