Fifteen of the 17 grandmothers featured in the exhibition attended the launch on July 21. Many of the women suffer from arthritis, hypertension and other health problems, and some had to use walking sticks for the evening. Nevertheless, they sung and danced with such vigour that they would have put young men to shame. One of the best parts of the evening was seeing them looking at each others’ photos, some of the grandmothers pointing at the pictures with their walking sticks and chuckling.
