The rewards of photographing a different generation

Those familiar with my work will notice quite a few photos of young people, in education or partying, so it's a little different to be asked to shoot at a care home for the elderly. In the end the approach that I took was the same, trying to get people to relax, even forget I'm there, as opposed to organise them into place for my benefit.

It was not only the elderly - on the same day for the same organisation (OrioneCare) I also spent a short time at a home for individuals with learning difficulties. Some of the results from the shoot are gathered in the slideshow below.

This was a curiously rewarding experience. Firstly very few seemed to be camera shy. Secondly I was really pleased in both locations to observe a genuine caring relationship between the staff and those they cared for. And finally when I got home and saw the images I just could not help smiling.
