While being a full-time caregiver to his mom, Tony Luciani took the opportunity to create something unique and beautiful. Using his newly bought camera, he turned his then 91-year old mother into his muse.

His mother, Elia, who is battling dementia, became the perfect subject for his camera. Tony captured the lively spirit of his mother and their wonderful bond together. The images are sometimes funny but are deep with emotion.
