The Tribeca Trib ran an article on the Alzheimer’s photo exhibit and upcoming symposium at Pace.

From Carl Glassman at the Tribeca Trib:

Sociologist and photographer Cathy Greenblat has been taking pictures of people with dementia for a decade. Eighty of these moving images, taken around the world, are on display through April 28 at Pace University’s Schim­mel Center for the Arts. “My goal is to help you to see that the person with dementia is still here, and not an empty shell,” Greenblat says in her just-published book, “Love, Loss, and Laughter: Seeing Alzheimer’s Differently,” in which these photos appear. The text accompanying the images below was written by Greenblat. The Shimmel Center for the Arts, at 3 Spruce St, is open Wed–Sat, 12–6 p.m. There will be free symposiums about Alzheimer’s and related diseases on Wednesday, April 25, at the Schimmel Center.
