Dementia Eye: A view to remember

JOIN IN WITH OUR PHOTOGRAPHY PROJECT DEMENTIA EYE: A VIEW TO REMEMBER. DEADLINE: 30 APRIL 2021

Open Eye Gallery and Mersey Care NHS Foundation Trust in association with Liverpool SURF Group have come together to invite people who live with Dementia to contribute to our collaborative project; Dementia Eye: A view to remember.

We are inviting people living with Dementia to share photographs of their ‘view’ over the past 12 months whilst we have been in lockdown.  This could be the view from your window or from your sofa, from your favourite spot in the garden or a view that is simply important to you. Perhaps it could be a photo that shows your emotions and how you feel. Along with the photo we would like you to add a short description.  This could be where it was taken, why you took the photo or maybe how the photo represents how you feel.

To take part you can send your photos and description by email to emma@openeye.org.uk or you can send them via text or Whatsapp on 07884408719.


PHOTOGRAPHY TIPS VIDEO

Watch our video where Emma Case, our Producer chatted with Sarah Butchard (Clinical Psychologist) and Stan Limbert (a member of the SURF group) covering some handy tips when taking your photos and how to send them to us!


PHOTOGRAPHY TIPS

When taking a photo make sure…

  • You don’t shoot into the sun or that it’s too sunny
  • Try taking a handful of photos rather than just one.  That way you can choose which one you like best.
  • Think about the time of day.. What time would be best?
  • Add a caption/description – what does this view mean to you?
  • If you find it hard to hold the camera steady, maybe prop it up against some books or pop your elbows on a table to steady yourself
  • Take your photo in good light.  Daylight works well.  If indoors find a well lit room rather than somewhere too dark.
  • When sending photos you can Whatsapp or email them to us.  
  • If you aren’t sure how to, maybe ask a family member to help.
  • If you have any problems you can always get in touch with us to help.


SUBMISSIONS

Here are some wonderful examples of the group’s photographs and descriptions to give you some inspiration…

Hilary Tetlow – This is the window I sit by when on Zoom, Teams etc

Pauline Charlton – Views from my kitchen window. The rainbow being especially appropriate during the lockdown.



Jo Barnes
– I stood in the sunflower field on my own in august looking at the one sunflower head up above the others and it suddenly struck me how alone I felt.

Julie Dickinson – My morning walk keeps me sane. Pure air. Rising sun. Joy. 9th May 2020

Stan Limbert – Here fishy fishy……I am waiting

The project closes for submissions on Friday 30th April 2021, and the images will be displayed online and in a Digital Window Gallery exhibition in the summer.

We can’t wait to see your submissions!
