SOUTH HADLEY, Mass. (WWLP) - Think back to when you were a teenager. What worried you then? What did you believe to be true? Fast forward 20, 30, 40, 50 years. What worries you now? What do you know now?
A group of women at Loomis Village in South Hadley took this trip down memory lane as a part of The Reunion Project, a multimedia project by photographer Lora Brody.
Nancy Eddy, MMA’s first president, is heading to the Hines Convention Center and Sheraton Boston Hotel for this year’s 40th anniversary event, which has the theme “Strong Communities for a Stronger Commonwealth.”
rody takes portraits of senior women and places them next to portraits of the women as teens. The women also respond anonymously to a series of prompts that allow them to self-reflect: Then I was.... Now I am," and "I used to think... Now I know."
Brody told 22News the first group of women she showcased as part of the Reunion Project was her former classmates at her 50-year class reunion in Hartford, Connecticut. Since then, she has featured women from all over the country.
