The role reversal between parent and child is never easy -- a truth Toronto-based painter Tony Luciani can attest to. But he and his elderly mother, Elia, have managed to find the beauty in it, and capture it through photography.
After Elia broke her hip and began developing dementia, her family considered placing her in a nursing home or assisted living.
“But she was still vibrant and alive,” Luciani told ABC News of his mother at that time. “I could not see my mom in a place like that, so I said, ‘Well, she can live with me.’”
Around that same time, the artist also purchased a camera with the intention of shooting reference photos for his paintings.
He decided, as a personal project, he would continue photographing his mother and create a photo diary for her.
