It is easy to optimistically focus on the future, never dwelling on the passage of time as the slow death sentence that it actually is; Still Here by Lydia Goldblatt, a photographer based in London, England, is a photo series that doesn't shy away from such a harsh truth. Yet it doesn't focus on it in an unforgiving way either. Instead, it is comprised of poignant shots that simply document a natural part of life.

Concentrating specifically on her aging parents, Still Here by Lydia Goldblatt is full of quiet shots from her mother taking a bath to her father's watch and even a lone dead bee. Fashion Co. Design notes, "Goldblatt turns their everyday activities into visual poetry."
