Memory of Never

Part of this exhibition also includes a few paired photos from Bidegain’s new series, “As We Get Older.” In this series he is exploring the challenge and beauty that accompanies aging. He captures physical changes and enduring spirit, as well as the ways in which society’s gaze turns away from older people. These are the first images presented from this developing body of work.
