David Schonauer of Pro Photo Daily relayed an article in The Guardian in which legendary photographer David Bailey, 83, has revealed he has vascular dementia, the second most common form of dementia after Alzheimer’s, notes The Guardian.

In some ways it’s good: I can see a film and forget it, then enjoy it again two years later. And it doesn’t seem to affect my work at all,” says Bailey, who was diagnosed about three years ago. Despite the disease, Bailey remains busy with a number of projects, and during the pandemic spent time painting at his homes in London and Devon, adds TG.
