Trusting the Spirit Path
Photographer: Jacobia Dahm
Exhibit Title: Trusting the Spirit Path
Location: United States
Connie Williams and her husband Richard lived in a little house in Platte City, Missouri for 33 years. With her husband in poor health, Connie, 65, has never made close friends. Richard, 71, suffered from PTSD after the Vietnam War and later developed diabetes as a result of his exposure to Agent Orange. In November 2013, Richard broke his hip and was moved into a nursing home, and later faced the amputation of his second leg. Over time, Connie turned from wife to main caretaker left with only the company of her beloved dogs and birds.
Connie believes that much depends on your perspective on life and she remains positive. She turned to the Japanese healing practice of Reiki to cope with stress and exhaustion.
Richard died unexpectedly a day after I left town. Connie's son told me later how my questions allowed Connie to relive the happy times she had had with Richard. I was moved to hear this, and it brought home to me the power of documentary photography, which is the power of attention.
