Senior Hyser Burger

by : Inge Prins

Senior Hyser Burger consists of ten unusual portraits of senior citizens (Afrikaans: burgers). Photographed in a goods lift (Afrikaans: hyser), it raises questions about their pasts and confronts the viewer with their current position: as the perceived static, unproductive part of society . The jewellery they wear makes for a quirky look at a changing masculinity.
