142 - Visual Storytelling of Dementia (The Bob & Diane Fund)

142 - Visual Storytelling of Dementia (The Bob & Diane Fund)

Visual Storytelling can help make complex stories easier to understand. It can deliver more impactful messages. It can make stories as relevant for readers as possible.

Why would someone choose to document visually on such a difficult subject as dementia? There are as many answers to this as there are for caregivers. For some, it's a way to process what they're going through. Whether this is the caregiver's journey or how to process grief, visual Storytelling is a therapeutic process for many.

In this episode, I talk to Gina Martin. She is the founder and CEO of The Bob & Diane Fund. She has been with National Geographic for 21 years. It was a long-held desire to help financially support photographers and their personal projects. Short of winning the lottery, it seemed like this dream would never happen.

It did happen, and they have now awarded five major grants. Gina tells us about the origin of the Bob & Diane Fund, the grants, and why it's essential to tell the story of Alzheimer's and dementia. If you've ever longed for a significant way to show someone what your caregiving days are like, this episode will give you that option.

Be sure to head to their website to see all the images from this year's winner, Jalal Shamsazaran, and his project, The loss of Oral History.
