Old Ideas

Old Ideas, is a project Kerim Knight started in 2020 and in short it is a free portrait day for Senior Citizens in corporation with the Ville De Genève and Cité Seniors. The purpose of this project is offer the chance for senior citizens who otherwise would not have the means to have a portrait session with a professional photographer. To offer them a portrait that the participants can be proud to share with their loved ones.

Each participant, has a different dynamic, no one is told to just smile, but the dynamic pulls out old thoughts, emotions and memories. – Leaving the viewer with a real moment.

“If every event which occurred could be given a name, there would be no need for stories”. – John Berger.

Kerim aims take this little project nationally.
