Art & Science project

This autumn ARC contacted the Stockholm School of Photography at Folkuniversitetet to ask if they would be interested in a collaborative project about aging where they would produce photographs of older people related to the research conducted at ARC. The response was positive and the project has resulted in 20 photography students creating 15 unique portraits of people across Sweden each.

The project amounted to 20 students at the Stockholm School of Photography being tasked with interpreting the research conducted at ARC about aging, older peoples’ health, and their living conditions.  It was also important that the students used their own experiences and references when portraying older people in their daily lives in Sweden today.
