The Centenarian Portrait Project by Teenagers
An honouring of the lives lived and led by our most senior citizens.
"In silence, I wondered how much of Jean I had yet to know. How much of her experience was hidden behind the appearance of the lady doing crossword puzzles in front of me. It’s in these brief periods of time that two members of vastly different generations can peer into each other’s lives, and learn so much about each other." 16-year-old artist, Anrui Sun
"My friendship with Olga has taught me that one’s personality does not wither with age. I was nervous about meeting Olga, because I had pre-conceived expectations of what my experience would be like. I had never expected my visits with Olga to be the highlight of my day, and after visiting a couple times a week for the past few months, my understanding of aging has changed. " 16-year-old artist, Summer Cory
"What an exceptional learning tool,
to have the wisdom of a centenarian"
