Portrait: The Elderly
Tell the story of an elderly person through the power of your camera. Capture the lines of their life.

What about if we imagine the life to come? Kids engaging in a practically ancient routine, formation marching in preparing for an Anzac day parade, a cultural custom used in remembrance of wars fought before and to come. A task, and performance used to link the new with the old, to install a convention fresh into the minds of youth.

Parade marching is now a relic that exists infrequently, used seemingly only now in civic services linked with a proud military history. It is of course a practical physical expression that links memory with fresh experience.

Participants are proud, clapped on by loving families whom remember the marches they participated in, whom themselves remember proudly their parents and grand parents. The custom is continued and supported, and this generation will look back here remembering the pride, the ceremony, the audience, and most likely will support it once more when they have children of their own.

The lines of the life of the elderly, what ever your opinion on conflict and war, is symbolically represented and celebrated within the lines of these children creating their fresh memories.
