Jonathan Canlas: Lola

Oh man.  These photos are so beautiful... full of connection and emotion in true Jonathan Canlas style! Love! But what touched me the most about these images is the story of family behind them.  Please take a moment to follow the link to Bunn Salarzon's blog.  So inspiring.

Thank you Jonathan (and Bunn) for sharing these with us!

From Jonathan:

"i LOVE this session. these images were all shot on my rollei 2.8F some of them using the rolleinar 1 (close up filter) on fuji acros. bunn is a photographer in oregon who came to hawaii with her husband, her mom, her niece and her mother in law. romy's mom, who was referred to as lola (grandma in tagolog) is suffering from dementia and their experience with it can be read on her blog :

a lot of the time she would stone wall us with no expression at all so i used everyone at the session to do whatever they could to get her to laugh. apparently if you tell "MONEY" she grins ear to ear.
i really wanted to focus on the relationship and connections and the example they are for taking on such a responsibility."
