The Generations

24 Jun

Linda 1949

Carrying on with my self-imposed task to meet with, chat to and draw one hundred Baby Boomers, I was lucky enough to ‘capture’ three in one go yesterday, three lifelong friends at the upper end of the Baby Boom, a research term that covers those born between 1946 and 1964.

The other generations are:

  • The Silents, or alternately The Traditionalists (I prefer The Silents, it’s like something from Doctor Who), born 1945 and before,
  • Generation X, 1965 to 1976,
  • The Millennials, 1977 to 1995,
  • The Centennials, born from 1996

According to researchers, generations share similar characteristics because they had similar experiences at more or less the same stage in life.

    Fantastic to see these Rosie. It’s easy to ignore people from this generation, and older, in terms of visual representation, unless you are some sort of celebrity. As I now look just like this I am glad that someone is recording our faces.

      Thanks Leonie. That’s why I started it, because we get ‘disappeared’from visual culture ….
