Shamsazaran is this year’s recipient of the Bob and Diane Fund, a grant to support work that increases the understanding of the disease and inspires research to end it. His images chronicle the last years of his father’s life and struggle with Alzheimer's disease before his death in early 2020.
Thank you, Olivier Laurent, for the feature.
