Loneliness is a terrible thing. It’s something that Harold Phillips is struggling to cope with ever since his wife Joan was taken into care suffering from Dementia. I spent a few weeks with Harold, documenting his daily life and talking about his past and future. This series was created to spread awareness for lonely and vulnerable adults across the U.K.
Three-quarters of older people in the UK are lonely I feel that this issue is very much under the radar. It should be discussed freely and openly within todays society.
This is a documentation of one man in a sea of many.
