I Am Still Me

photo-camera-1241441_1920

I Am Still Me is a collection of 18 portraits taken by Yorkshire-based photographer Helen Williams. The people in the photographs all have dementia—something you can’t tell by looking at them.

The individuals photographed came together through their shared love of singing, joining the Harrogate Dementia Forward Singing Group. The group gives them a sense of themselves, a feeling of belonging, and the knowledge that they are still ‘someone’.

Each photograph includes a written caption, penned by the sitter, describing who they are. The free temporary exhibition runs from 30 April – 10 June 2018 at the National Science and Media Museum, Bradford.
