“I call it Portraits of a Lifetime, and it’s all seniors. I thought that I could preemptively go to senior homes and do free portraits of people, because often times that would be the only photograph taken of them in that age. I shot free portraits, a 5x7 print and a digital file that the senior home can send to their families. At the time there would be a big line of people, and I’d just kind of hurry them through, and then I thought ‘I’m missing some gold here, there’s so much wisdom here.’ So I’d ask them some questions and videotape them and combine those words with the photos,” Streble said.
