Facing Parkinson’s is a collection of portraits & stories of people with Parkinson’s disease. Worldwide, 10 million people live with Parkinson’s. In the U.S. alone 60,000 people are diagnosed every year.
46 people invited the photographer into their homes and allowed him to photograph them and record their stories. Their stories as well as the photographs reveal their spirit, creativity, pathos and even humor. Each story is unique but there is a common thread – an acceptance of their disease and its limitations, but more importantly, a desire to bring into focus the things that matter most to them.
There are no celebrity portraits or stories inside these pages. These are the faces of friends, neighbors, family members and their caregivers stricken with a progressive and still incurable neurological disease.
