We were delighted to have photographer Alex Rotas as part of the REACT team.
Have a look below, for her fantastic work!
Alex Rotas challenges stereotypes about ageing through photography, speaking, writing - and getting old herself. She loves tennis, swimming and is a beginner runner.
Favourite hashtag: #disruptaging [sic]
Alex spent some time capturing the experiences of the participants in Bristol and Bath. As always she managed to capture some wonderful expressions of effort, determination and enjoyment!
About alex' photogrAPHY
Governments, health service providers, insurance, leisure and construction industries, even the United Nations are addressing not just a growing older demographic, but also the value of an increasingly active and healthy senior population. And yet, in the media, the over 60s are still more likely to be portrayed as infirm, immobile, silly, redundant, sick, spent and sad.
