In 2006, Phillip Toledano's mother passed away and with that act, the veil was lifted between himself and the mental state of his father. His father lacks short-term memory and Phillip decided to start a photo journal recording daily interactions between them. His work has recently been released as a book and we hope you find it as beautiful and touching as we do.

With the loss of short-term memory comes a sense of loneliness and loss. Not remembering where the people around you have gone can leave an unimaginable hole inside of you. Phillip's photos and commentary weave a heart-warming story of life and the strength and frailty of it at the same time.

You can find the book at Amazon for $13.57 (on sale) and be sure to head over to his website to check out a preview of what the book holds. Click the bottom of each screen to make the story continue moving - it's a lovely site, presentation and story.

Thanks Phillip!
