Ex-editor and photographer launch bid to find 100 people of different ages

A former editor has teamed up with a photographer in a bid to capture images of people aged from one to 100.

Steve Hoselitz, who edited the South Wales Argus, has joined forces with Amy Hewitt for the project, which will document in pictures and words the way people in South Wales are coping during the pandemic.

The pair are looking for 100 people from across the region, and will select one person of each age from one to 100 to be photographed and give a short interview.

Their contributions will be compiled into an exhibition of 100 images to be displayed publicly.

Steve told the Argus: “The idea for the project really took off when we met recently.

“Amy has the perfect skills to bring it to life.

“It will be a challenge to get someone from every birth year, but it adds a special dimension to the project, too.”

Amy added: “I am really excited at the thought of meeting so many different people and documenting their personal experiences during these unprecedented times.”
