Senior Citizens and Landscapes
A new built apartment building with flats specially designed for the senior citizens next to a retirement home. The hallways from floor to ceiling completely in yellow; my luck to be commissioned to produce a body of work to be shown on those yellow walls.
I decided to portray the inhabitants who first moved into the flats as well as some of the surrounding landscape as to tell the story of the place. I had a first informal chat with each of the participants to get to know each other during which we decided together on how their own individual personality might best be portrayed. The shooting was conducted at a second appointment. I went back with the images in a third encounter to find out how much the people felt represent by the images and to get their feedback on how they feel about the images. We chose one image per person which was printed and is now on display in the hallways of the apartment building.
