Bruce Dupre and Doris Svec are both recipients of Meals on Wheels, a program designed to provide nutrition to the home bound in Southeastern Connecticut. The program provides over 57,000 home-cooked meals for seniors along the Shoreline. One rainy day, about two weeks ago, I had the opportunity to interview a couple elders, volunteers and directors about the program for the hyper-local publication at which I work.
I took portraits of Bruce and Doris in their element during the project, mostly for myself. Thereâ€™s something intriguing about old age; a history in a face full of wrinkles. A majority of my Italian-immigrated family is getting old. Things begin to change, bringing about the next generation of familial liveliness. Canâ€™t really put my finger on whatâ€™s so fascinating â€“ I think thatâ€™s because Iâ€™m not there yet and wonâ€™t be for some time.
