I wanted an opportunity to get to know an older person and do a shoot with them, partly, because I am really interested in wrinkles! I'm also a fan of getting to know older people and hearing about their lives and how they see life in general.
My subject for this shoot was a nurse for over 30 years. Her name is Anne and she spent the first part of her career in the Meaford Hospital and then (fed up with canadian weather), she moved on to the Operating Room in Naples, Florida.
Anne shared some pretty amazing (and gruesome) operating room stories as we played around in her 3 bedroom apartment in Kitchener.
She was happy to show off her wrinkles and told me she "earned every single one of them!".
I wanted to make sure we captured her nursing days, so she dawned her finest scrub shirt (which she now wears as pj's). We played around with the surgical instruments she used to use on the operating room and she showed me how she would hold them.
I loved this shoot!
Thank you, Anne, for allowing me the chance to chat with you and capture your lovely story. I bet those (now) wrinkled hands saved alot of lives.
