My grandmother and my husband Ricard´s grandmother left this world with diffracted understandings of their surroundings. My nanny went her way with Alzheimer’s and Ricard´s avia went her way with dementia. The photo series with book is about trying to read underwater quotations of “great thinkers” that my mother sent to me while caring for her mother at home. My childhood connection to an immense body of saltwater came from my grandmother. Photos by Laia Ribé.
