Snap Happy — Being Old in Scotland in Photographs

  • Emmanuelle Tulle


This chapter is an examination of identity and cultural capital among people who took part in a photography project — Still Life? — designed to draw attention to the lived experience of older people in Scotland, UK. The intention of the project was to give people the means to articulate what they felt was meaningful about growing older in contemporary Scotland. What was particularly distinctive about this project was that the participants would take photographs themselves, rather than have photographs taken of or for them. They worked with art photographers to produce a body of work which was displayed in an exhibition in one of Scotland’s main museums, the National Portrait Gallery in Edinburgh.
