THE LAST GOODBYE | Head On Photo Festival

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.
