Time has passed by

by Ana Rivas (Spain)

I am a passionate amateur photographer, and did join this workshop with Patrick because I wanted to learn how to tell my photo stories better. I am sure that it will be a turning point in my photo works.
Actually, I did changed the topic of my project slightly. From the very beginning, I wished to photograph the elders, particularly the effects of the Spanish economic malaise on their condition. To start with my project, I visited the elder residence ‘Ramon Berenguer’ in Santa Coloma, Barcelona. There, I did find directly on the walls of  the main entrance, many pictures from the elder, when they were much younger, that were facilitated by their families.
I had the chance to witness several very emotional moments, when the residents were confronted with their old pictures. It was so touching that I did decide to change the topic. The title of my project is ‘Time has passed by’.
