And Then, they were no longer invisible is a socially engaged photographic project that creates space for new narratives around aging, ageism and isolation.

The vision of this ongoing project is to use photo-storytelling and cultural preservation practices to develop social and creative connections and experiences with older people in diverse communities. Through this project, Muddle and Robinson honour older people. They work alongside communities, inviting people to participate in a range of unique co-creation opportunities that culminate in community-based large-scale public art exhibitions with supportive digital storytelling.

“Their lives span decades, traversing history, marked by seasons of love and loss, triumph and challenge. They might not know it yet, but their stories are a gift.”
