The Elders

The Elders

The Elders is a community history project developed by Franklyn Rodgers and B3 Media. Artist and Photographer Franklyn Rodgers’ arresting, iconic images document individuals from the Windrush era, the first wave of African Caribbean settlers to arrive in the early 1960s, who played a vital role in post-war regeneration and the shaping of a new national identity. 

For this project I am exploring how the interviews that have been recorded might be weaved together with music and a ambient soundscape to provide a fresh dimension to Rodger's stunning portraits.
