Talya Arbisser's Message: "A Visual Diary: Saba & Savta" focuses on my paternal grandparents, “Saba Raffi” and “Savta D’vorah” Arbisser, who live in Houston. He is 90 and she is 88 and they married 68 years ago. They have three children, none of whom reside here. I enjoy a close relationship with my grandparents, and I moved to Houston in 2010 to provide support and assistance to them. I began this series in 2012 as a way to understand their experiences and to shed light on growing older in a society that values youth and health. Over time, my grandparents have become comfortable with being photographed. I want others to see the moments that nobody really sees.

Trained as a documentary photographer, my series reflects the broader health care issues among the growing elderly population and the concerns facing many families in the United States today. My project explores a range of complex issues including: quality of life, social roles, family and intergenerational relationships, the economics of retirement, activities of daily living, healthcare, illness, disability and death.

Discussions about escalating medical costs, public policy and end-of-life care are hotly debated topics. With advances in medicine and declines in mortality rates, the “oldest old” — those aged 85 and older — are the most rapidly growing elderly age group. As I drive my grandparents to their various medical appointments, I am learning about their increasing degree of frailty. They have numerous co-morbidities that adversely impact their ability to thrive. Through my photographs and accompanying text, I want to foster dialog about these important and complex issues.

An exhibition subtitled Generations was exhibited at the Evelyn Rubenstein Jewish Community Center in Houston, TX. An exhibition subtitled Growing Older was exhibited at the UT Art Wall at the UTHealth Medical School also in Houston, TX. The exhibitions were in conjunction with FotoFest Biennial 2014 and were curated by Jean Caslin & Diane Griffin Gregory.
