Jong belegen

In the project Jong belegen (Dutch name for young matured cheese) students Community Work and the Zwolle elderly came together. The aim was to get to know each other and overcome prejudice. 
39 couples are portrayed and interviewed by Berenice van Woerden. The participants were asked to make contact by, for instance, touching a shoulder or sit close together. This resulted in intimate portraits.

The photos include statements of the young and older participants, whose statements deliberately have not been labeled to either one. Thereby, preconceptions are broached, about what is typically young or typical old. There appear to be more similarities than expected.

The project Jong belegen is a collaboration of the Deltion College, the  Elderly Care Zwolle and Berenice van Woerden.
