If Not Now commemorates 50 years of a charity called Contact the Elderly, with a UK wide commission to create a series for print and a touring exhibition at venues such as St Pauls cathedral, Houses of Parliament and National Museums of Scotland to celebrate the anniversary. The 50 portraits were shown on a project specific website, newspaper and book.

The project involved traveling across the UK to photograph elderly members of the charity and asking various questions about each sitters experience with loneliness, and how their lives have benefited since joining the charity.Questions such as how has loneliness affected their lives, what experiences they have had since joining the charity, and what it’s like to feel lonely. These can be heard below along with a selection of the images.
