Telling the story of a different way of looking at aging in an in-patient rehabilitation setting.
“A Different Face”

Telling the story of a different way of looking at aging.
Developed and created a permanent installation for a Rehabilitation Unit. The project featured portraits of older adults who were inpatients. During their stays individuals were photographed and then linked with words – passionate, confident, courageous – designed to educate, underscore and communicate the positive experience of rehabilitation in this particular setting to patients, visitors and staff. A “different face” on what it means to be an older person and recover.
