The latest Alzheimer’s Association ad campaign likes the victims of such a heartless disease to artists. Subjective by nature, those suffering from Alzheimer’s essentially turn their entire world into one big art piece that needs to be analyzed every minute of every day. In particular, the Alzheimer’s Association ad campaign focuses on fragmented portraits of a daughter, husband and grandson.
Conceived and executed by Grupo Gallegos, an ad agency based in the United States, the Alzheimer’s Association ad campaign was art directed by Pablo Bufagni, Curro Chozas and Saúl Escobar. The powerful images were shot by photographer Maggie Zulovic and illustrated by artist Reinobuenosaires. Heartbreakingly distorted, it gives people a glimpse into the mind of one who suffers from Alzheimer’s. Nothing is ever the same again after such an onslaught on the mind.

Conscious is a surreal series by photographer Ryan James Caruthers that explores themes of memory through a hazy perspective. The 19-year-old’s dreamy collection of images offer an interpretive narrative within each frame that is a sentimental visual for Caruthers himself. He tells us, “The inspiration behind my Conscious series is my own stream of thoughts and memories. Each photograph is a representation of something that I have experienced or that has impacted my life. It’s a very nostalgic experience for me and each image is altered to convey this.”
The young photographer, who recently moved to New York to study and pursue a career in the arts, uses a visual technique that is very personal to him. Caruthers explains, “The images are all distorted using the water from the creek that runs through the forest near my house back in New Jersey. As a child I spent most of my time playing around in these woods and would hang out with friends and sometimes even swim in the creek growing up.
