While in quarantine, residents at a North London elderly care facility, and their caregivers, have been posing like Adele, Madonna, David Bowie, and other musical artists for an album cover recreation project.

Elderly people will remain in lockdown for a long time, and I want to make their time as happy and full of enjoyment and interest as possible.
