I Still Do. Loving and Living with Alzheimer's. Photographs by Judith Fox. Foreword by Roy L. Flukinger.
powerHouse Books, New York.
Three years into their marriage, Judith Fox’s husband, Dr. Edmund Ackell, was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s Disease. Over the course of the next ten years, Fox watched as the man who used to perform surgery, fly planes, and run universities, forgot how to turn on the coffee maker, place a phone call, or remember what his wife had told him two minutes earlier.
More than 5 million Americans have Alzheimer’s. A poignant and beautiful portrait of a man with Alzheimer’s as seen through the loving lens and words of his wife and carepartner, I Still Do: Loving and Living With Alzheimer’s puts a human face in front of the statistics, exploring the disease through Fox’s intimate photographs and poetic writing. While the details of I Still Do are personal and unique, this deeply candid story of illness, aging, partnership, and loving is universal.
