"MAMMA: In the Meantime" a photographic tale by Tony Luciani



MAMMA: In the Meantime a powerful photographic tale on an extraordinary and unconventional relationship between the artist and his muse. Tony and his ninety-four-year-old mother Elia embark on a journey of discovery where art becomes the perfect medium to express the grief and wonders of living with Dementia.

Elia’s powerful features, wearing with pride the sign of the years past, lead us into unknown territory, made of simple discoveries, renewed pleasures, and everyday struggles. Poetic moments captured by her son Tony’s indulgent and loving eye; a visual testament reminding us that life with all its challenges is indeed worth living.

Ageing is one of the hardest truths that we are all inevitable called upon to accept. Luciani with this work artfully tackles a difficult and timely subject with elegance, warmth and empathy. Experience this scintillating example of how an artist and his muse can symbiotically succeed in delivering a message of hope.

The exhibit is organized by Villa Charities with the support of the Alzheimer Society of Grey-Bruce and the Istituto italiano di cultura.
