Missing 14

Aida s


This is another series I haven’t visited in quite awhile.  I still get Silver Alerts from Notify NYC in my email box, and I always look at the photos and text.  As I said in my original post, the photos are almost always unprofessional and often very poor quality.  We are busy documenting ourselves, our children, our friends, but the elderly among us, even those we love, often remain unseen.

And they go missing, although my research indicated that usually they are also found fairly quickly.

I had a long and vivid dream about my grandmother the other night.  Something about Aida reminded me of her.

You can see the entire Missing series here.

    Nice portrait and thoughtful way of spending time ‘with’ someone.

    Oh, I love these! What a humanizing touch these portraits have, and they remind us that when people go “missing,” they’re real people who are lost and need to be found.
