By the age of 91, Tony's mother could no longer take care of herself. Suffering from dementia she needed 24 hour surveillance and somebody to do the day to day household jobs.
Her son Tony decided to dedicate himself to his mother, and moved his work office to her home, so he could be there to help at any time.
Tony Luciani graduated from Fine Arts when he was 22, and since then has made paintings of his own photographs. In 2013 he got his first digital SLR camera and realised that photography was his true vocation.
Now, years later, after returning home to live with her mother, she became his muse. And so began his journey of her life documented in images, telling her story, her loss of memory, her age, and the physical and mental deterioration that comes with old age.
Tony believes that his photos have touched a sensitive chord in many people, and he encourages them to reflect - "Life is not waiting to die. It's about wanting to live."
