"This book begins with personal experience and points to our common future. Through images and words, it expresses my care and love for my mother and allows me to share my observations, feelings and ideas about time, memory, space and life. I would like to dedicate the book to my mother and other seniors, and to you, their silent caregivers, past, present and future."
The book features a creative blend of photography and writing in reflecting on aging, family love, memory and places. The author weaves poetry in both images and texts, expressing her love for her senile mother while keenly observing the fast-changing city where they live. She asked in the book, "Is it time that makes us lose our memories, or society that causes collective amnesia?" The contents are deeply moving and engaging; the images are evocative, immensely captivating and truly unique. The book has received several awards including Bronze Prize in the Tokyo International Foto Awards 2017 in Japan, Honorable Mention in the International Photography Awards 2017 in USA, and Honorable Mention in Prix de la Photographie (Px3) 2018 in France.
