Self-portraits of a dementia patient

William Utermohlen’s self-portraits – (37signals)

Beautiful self-portraits by William Utermohlen depicting his descent into dementia.

1998
1999
2000
The portraits depict not merely the physical deterioration but the gradual reduction in self-perceiving abilities as well.I dont think we have anywhere  else a better documented impact of the Alzhiemer’s disease on the patient’s physical as well mental faculties.
