Alzheimer's Society supported through new exhibition

Alzheimer's Society supported through new exhibition
21st October 2009

A dementia-orientated charity is getting more support after a photographer announced his intentions to donate the proceeds from an exhibition currently being held in Bethnal Green, London.

The collection, entitled There Are No Memories of You Here, is the work of Sam Johnson, who is showing his pictures at Gallery 320 near Brick Lane from November 4th to 30th to raise money for the Alzheimer's Society.

Mr Johnson said the exhibition looks at the relationship between landscapes and the memories that are associated with such scenes, particularly after the passing of a person close to the subject.

He continued: "As such, and after the recent passing of a family member to the disease it seems only fitting that your charity is the one I would like to work with."

There is an estimated 700,000 people in the UK with dementia, according to the charity, though this is set to rise to one million by 2025.
