Diane Hastings explains how she manages her hopes
Over 1 in 100 elderly people develop Parkinson's globally. So I'm portraying over 100 people in the Parkinson's story - it's far from comprehensive, but it's representative of the variety of people on its stage - young and old Parkinson's people, spouses who have become carers, researchers, surgeons, activists and supporters who give their time or money. In all my portraits I'm using 'Chiaroscuro' - the use of light and dark - to symbolise the emerging breakthrough cures for Parkinson's which are right now moving from laboratory success through to clinical trials. In this area, the UK is a world leader. It's a special moment in the history of this condition.
