Participatory Arts

The women at Guildford Grange Extra Care Scheme spent several weeks with Monica Fernandez photographing their everyday lives. Out of this came conversations about the ubiquity of ‘before and after’ photos and the fact that they felt that the ‘afters’ were often worse than the ‘befores’. In keeping with their statement that they are “too old to take ourselves seriously”, they decided to take this to extremes to show how ridiculous it was and Monica was detailed to provide an arrangement of props and costumes. Each woman decided how and where she was photographed.
