Parkinson’s UK is the largest Parkinson’s support and research charity in the UK.
We hope to improve the lives of everyone affected by Parkinson’s and together, find a cure.
We influence and fund groundbreaking research to advance understanding of Parkinson’s and improve treatments and offer support and opportunities to live life to the full for everyone with Parkinson’s, their families and carers.
As part of our special event programme, we want to bring the beautiful photographs of the late David Wolf Kaye, who sadly passed away from Parkinson’s in 2019, to Photo London.
We see this as a fantastic opportunity to celebrate how David saw the world through the lens of his camera and raise vital funds through the sale of his work and book.
David Wolf Kaye grew up in Hampshire and London. He attended the Jewish boarding school, Carmel College, before reading Economics at Queens' College, Cambridge. He went on to train as an accountant, then joined Lancing Bagnall, the family firm. David spent the next forty years running businesses in Canada and the UK.
Throughout his life, David's passion was photography. After being diagnosed with Parkinson's in 2008, he reduced his work commitments and was able to complete his ambition of travelling to every continent with his camera. His Shapes, Shadows and Lines book gives us a glimpse into his unique way of looking at the world.
David died six weeks after his last trip.
