Alma and Alzheimer's — Open Award Single Photo Gold Prize

Photographer: Jason Parnell-Brookes (United Kingdom)

Story: Donald,90, sits alone in the background consumed in his suffering with Alzheimer's and unaware of his wife, Alma, 84 having dinner just feet away. He came back from World War II, changed from the kind caring man she had married, suffering with shellshock (PTSD). After a violent 60-year marriage with Alma, Donald was diagnosed with Alzheimer's. In the last few years of his life there was a sudden and rapid change of his demeanor rendering him placid, back to the man she had married.
