Macular Degeneration

Jan Ross is a healthy 72-year-old, except she has macular degeneration, a condition that slowly causes deterioration of her vision. She was really sweet when she invited me in to her house for photos - pretty shy about the idea that anyone would want to pay attention to her story. It was a nice shoot.

Totally unrelated to the piece, Ross' apartment was super cute with some awesome mid-century modern furniture. I was eyeing her table and chairs.
