Rosa: A Love Story

Judith Leitner


The camera held my hand through my mother's descent into Alzheimer's disease and memory loss. It allowed me to stand back and to step in -- the duality of detachment and intimacy. The Polaroid emulsion lift process allows for rich tonal range, and the pliant Japanese paper embraces both subtle and bold imagery. Each image is a metaphor for my mother’s lucent memory as well as her inner strength.
