Changing View with Lizdean Nursing Home

Photographer Jenny Wicks created photography-based creative activities with the residents and staff at Lizdean Nursing Home in Kilmarnock. A range of approaches were trialled, exploring reflections and shadows, composing still life scenes of objects, and capturing a changing view from a bed or window.

The project took place between December 2020 and January 2021 and finished earlier than planned when the pressures of the Covid-19 pandemic made it too difficult for the work to continue. 

This project was one of four creative collaborations, part of Creative Ageing in the Pandemic, exploring different ways that artists and older people can work together safely.
