Never too old or too sick...
Meet Austin, my brave father who has let me document him during a very vulnerable and difficult phase of his life.
He suffered from three strokes at the age of 79-years-old and his life drastically changed. His body failed him causing him great distress and embarrassment – I will talk more about this down the track – for now I will let the pictures speak.
On several occasions he looked certain to leave this world a very ill and a depressed person, but remarkably he is battling on. Through many tears, unavoidable laughter and with the support of his wife, my mother Stephanie, and a lot of alternative therapy he has made incredible changes, emotionally, spiritually and physically.
At 80-years-old he took up yoga – not bad for an Irish born and raised Kiwi/Australian farmer!
