On exhibit now at Artscape Youngplace is a photo documentary on seniors in Toronto called ‘Focus on Our Elders’.  It is being shown in the 3rd floor gallery until the 17th of March.   There are 24 panels in the exhibit, one for each participant in the project.   The main feature of each panel is a portrait of the individual and it is accompanied by at least one other photo of something relevant to the participant’s life, as well as text that tells some of the stories of their lives.

With thanks to Penny for taking this picture!

The project was funded my Myseum of Toronto and is part of their 3rd annual Intersections festival.

    My pleasure to take the picture, my gratitude that you took me to see the exhibit. I think worldwide we can learn from the 6clicks methodology, and create similar grassroots tributes in our own communities, to make visible and honour those who are too often disregarded. Thank you for putting the inspiration before us.
