THE LAST GOODBYE

Photographer's Name
Aimee Sluga

My grandma was brought into hospital with severe pressure sores, dementia, pneumonia and weighing only 45 kg. She is completely reliant on nurses and no longer knows who I am. 
Although she was smiling, you could tell it she was in pain and it wasn't a genuine smile, as though she was just copying my smile. I was shocked to see her this way and wanted to capture the sadness in a photo before she passed away.
