"We are now starting to see the easing of the lockdown and with that we can begin to step outside, enjoy the sunshine and play sport," said co-curator Nan Levy.
Current government advice says that those aged 70 and over should take particular care to minimise contact with others outside their household.Levy adds: "I have gathered together a collection of Shirley's photographs taken from the mid-60s to the mid-80s; these show older people enjoying their daily lives in the community in a way that is not possible at the moment."
