On two separate days in August and September during my residency at the Bubbler at Madison Public Library’s Central Branch, I photographed groups of intergenerational relationships. This project was co-hosted in partnership with the Bubbler, with a Madison Public Library Community Engagement Librarian, Mary Fahndrich, and the Madison Senior Center’s Multigenerational Coordinator, Laurie Bibo.
The photographs are currently exhibited at the Central Library and the Senior Center. Prints and digital files of the images will be given to the participants free of charge.
The partnership between myself, the Senior Center and the Library has plans to continue this project into the next few years and casting a wider net across the community, to other libraries and senior centers. Generous funding was provided by the Madison Public Library Foundation.
