This limited edition photograph was taken in Tokyo in 2019. It features a series of colourful doors, which Dankoff thought would be perfect for this project. According to him, the brain can be seen as a series of doors – some are more easily opened than others. Terrible diseases such as Alzheimer’s look to close these doors permanently. Dankoff likes that the doors are painted in bright, hopeful colours, which reflect the incredible effort being made to combat brain disease.
