Contemporary Elderly is a series of colorised photographs of older people shot in the streets of Milano. An insight into the status of senior citizens in modern times, through close-up crops on postures, clothing details and specific gestures, emphasised by the selective process of colorisation – a method of manually adding colour to a black-and-white photograph.
