Every second, as the earth spins around the sun, we get older. But when do we actually become old? And how does our view of our ageing self change with time?

Sex and Death invites you to reflect on life, death and what happens in between. Part-date, part-photoshoot, it’s a chance to ask the big questions to someone a little older and wiser, and to consider the experience of yourself changing through time. Bring a photo of yourself – just you, from at least ten years ago – the further back the better. A time that was significant then, or feels significant now. But most importantly, a time you can talk about. Through playful and provocative encounters, explore how time shapes, morphs and ultimately makes us who we were, who we are, and who we will become.
