Life voices in photo: From the springboard of migration, through a cascade of life stories, to a landscape of aging
Today there is are an increasing number of people who have emmigrated/immigrated and are growing older in a place other than their country of origin. People are migrating between countries and cultures more than every before, and people are living longer than before. What does daily life look like for those of us who are growing older in Sweden today, but whose lives started somewhere other than Sweden? In the research project, " Creating inclusive communities: Challenging the status quo through a multi-national innovative integration of ethnography and photovoice among elder migrants," researchers from Karolinska Institutet and Multicultural Center together with persons 60+ whom have migrated to Sweden, have explored issues relating to migration, everyday life, and change. A photovoice method was used where participants used photographs and stories to share experiences and reflections.
