V anishing in Plain Sight” is Olivia Parker's imagination’s journey through her husband John’s continual changes due to Alzheimer’s disease. She began with tangible things: the notes he wrote to help him remember and the office supplies he feared would be gone. When a subject or a camera moves during an exposure the subject disappears partially or entirely. She found that this characteristic of photography was well suited to the images she wanted to create next. As John became more and more disconnected from the world around him her photographs began to depart from what her eyes saw. The assumed connection between photography and reality remains giving voice to her imagined images.
