Departure #3 (#917) 07-17-15

This is a little different than my usual stranger portraits. Neurochallenge is a local organization that is a resource for Parkinson's Disease patients.

They will soon publish an expanded brochure for new Parkinson's patients in the area. They asked me to photograph some patients, their caregivers, and Neurochallenge staff to include in the publication.

I found a reasonable location immediately outside of the facility and have taken all of the images in the same spot. Here are three, two patients and one caregiver. These people are dealing well, with a devastating disease. I hope that their faces show both difficulties and optimism.

Here are three more Parkinson's Disease patients.

The last image is my wife.
