'it is what it is' tell sthe story of PUal - a man who gradually dissappears from the world and whose life energies slowly abandon him. He loses his cognitive skills: thinking, memories, perception, communication, the ability to express himself, awareness of who he is and who he was.

Ludmilla Kemetmueller does not only use documentary photography for this project but also different visualization techniques like experiments with colors and materials serve as a metaphor for extistence, illness and approaching death. The aim is to bridge the gap between forgetting and memory through images. The many facets of dementia, the images of an illness that is so difficult to fathom for the afflicated and their families, are reflected in this book.
