Resilience

 

     Studies suggest most women feel a greater sense of fulfilment and self-actualization as they grow older due to their tremendous mental strength acquired throughout their life time. Along with their older age comes a unique skill of coping and courage to pursue life, despite all the inevitable adversities of their age. 'Resilience' is a body of work portraying the elderly women of Grangetown, Cardiff and their strength to perceive older age as a time of fulfilment of life. Resembling mother nature’s resilience, these women defy the odds of their circumstances to flourish in a 21st century community.
