Redefining Active Seniors' was a self assigned personal project. I wanted to challenge the notion of senior citizens in passive and complacent roles - sitting in their rocking chairs, on the front porch, waiting for their grandchildren to arrive.
Scouting was easy. There are many mature adults having vibrant, engaged and interesting lives. Everyone I met was enthusiastic to show me how they are redefining the word, senior citizen. The theme was to maintain an environmental portraiture feel, and use a mix of strobe and available lighting. My time with them was humbling, and their commitment to be resilient when overcoming life’s obstacles, has inspired me to do the same.
This assignment has created a wave of mature adults wanting to join the project, eager to show they have been around the block a few times, and prove they are still a card carrying member of our society.
