From age 0 to 100. (Com canviem!)

Impressionant com canviem les persones amb el pas dels anys. En el nostre dia a dia no ens n’adonem del pas del temps d’aquesta manera tant bèstia.
Increïble el salt que hi ha dels 23 als 33, o com gent amb tan sols un any de diferencia aparenta una diferencia de 6 o 7.


Jo sóc terrible per ficar edat a la gent. Puc pensar que algú de 34 és més gran que jo, o conèixer algú molt interessant i  pensar que sóc una “asaltacunas” per agradar-me algú tan jove, i després resultar que té gairebé la mateixa edat que jo…
De totes maneres, on més és nota la edat, no és en el físic, sinó en el cap! ;)


Us deixo un vídeo curiós, per si no l’heu vist. (font: I la possibilitat de aprendre a contar fins a 100 en holandès! ;)


IIn October 2011 I started documenting people in the city of Amsterdam, approaching them in the street and asking them to say their age in front of the camera. My aim was to ‘collect’ a group of 100 people, from age 0 to 100. At first my collection grew fast but slowed down when it got down to the very young and very old. The young because of sensivity around filming or photographing children and the very old because they don’t get out of the house much. I found my very old ‘models’ in care homes and it was a privilege to document these -often vulnerable- people for this project. I had particular problems finding a 99 year-old. (Apparently 100 year-olds enjoy notoriety, but a 99 year-old is a rare species…) And when I finally did find one, she refused to state her age. She simply denied being 99 years old! But finally, some 4 months after I recorded my first ‘age’, I was able to capture the ‘missing link’ and conclude this project. Enjoy.
(By the way: together these people have lived 5050 years…)
