A photoshoot of a memory not yet lived
A photoshoot of a wish reimagined

This is a photoshoot project for elderly with dementia I produced with artist Walter Ma and Circle of Care Community Support Centre for the Elderly (part of Tung Wah Hospital Group).

We invited elderly members of the care centre to attend photoshoots in which we tailor-made costumes, props and stage set-up to help them capture their most cherished memory or a dream they would like to fulfil.

About the artist: 

Walter is a professional makeup artist, and integrates makeup into his art practices. He sees makeup as a point of departure, and interested in perception of beauty, gender, body autonomy as his subject matter. This time, he would like to use makeup and photography, to help elders with dementia and their family, to capture a cherished memory of a lifetime.

馬浩賢(Walter)是一位化妝師,亦是以化妝品為創作媒介的藝術家。Walter 以化妝為出發點,就美,性別,身體⾃主等主題創作。這次他希望透過化妝以及攝影,和患有認知障礙的長者與家人,一起回味生命中的珍貴故事。
