“Visual Storytelling Grant” awarded to Danish photographer Sofie Mathiassen by The Bob & Diane Fund

Tuesday 19 November 2019

On 19 November 2019, The Bob & Diane Fund announced it was awarding USD 5,000 (EUR 4,518) to Danish photographer Sofie Mathiassen for her project, “But Greatest is Love”. The Bob & Diane Fund, launched in June 2016, is an American grant-making organisation dedicated to promoting awareness of Alzheimer’s and dementia-related diseases. It is the passion project of Gina Martin, whose mother, Diane, died from Alzheimer’s dementia. Diane’s husband of 50 years, Bob, who was her primary carer, died three months later. The “Visual Storytelling Grant”, now in its fourth year, aims to bring awareness, interest, and support for funding research efforts, by awarding a photographer whose work tells the stories of people living with dementia, with dignity and respect. Sofie Mathiassen’s work, “But Greatest is Love” will be presented in the Washington Post and featured on www.bobanddianefund.org
