Jeannette Montgomery Barron began photographing her mother’s clothes and accessories to trigger her fading memories. Often the pictures were taken against backgrounds that had as much personal relevance as the garments themselves. And even as the Alzheimer’s progressed Eleanor could still recall when and where she wore her clothing. When Ellie passed away these images became not only an ode to her refined taste and vivacious personality, but meaningful and evocative still lifes in which she continues to live on.
