Older people talk about love lost and found
“You can never get over it if you truly love someone,” says Kathleen, 86. “I am old fashioned and I think you can only truly love one person in your life.” With Valentine’s Day around the corner, Kathleen is one of 14 Londoners aged between 75 and 95 who have revealed when they fell in love and the difference it made to their lives. The group is featured in Love Lived, a collaborative exhibition combining video and photographs capturing their stories and thoughts about love. The project, currently on display at Broadgate Tower in central London, was created after photographer Holly Wren was inspired “to show that experiences of love are universal and transcend the boundaries of age”.
