Transience!

This website here sure made me shed some suppressed tears.

It is a son’s photo journal of his aging father’s last years. Following the death of his mother, photographer Phillip Toledano was shocked to learn of the extent of his father’s severe memory loss. He started a blog on which he posted photographs and accompanying reflections on his father’s changing state.

These moments hold eloquence of their own. The candidly emotional photos alongside a brief string of words conveys everything from melancholy to genteel humor. It ought to be made into a movie!
