Sid is 71 years of age, although his thighs suggest someone younger…

This body of work explores the idea of ageing and challenges the commonly held misconception that to be an ‘older person’ is to live a life that is quiet, boring and inactive.  Sid is a motorbike-riding, campervan-driving, rock n’ roll dancing naturist.  He’s an ex-engineer and photographer who has kindly lent me a 50 year old Minolta 6 x 6 camera with which to shoot the project.
