Residents at Castle Village recently found themselves in front of the camera for a fantastic fashion shoot!

Fashion photographer Thurstan Redding paid a visit to the village to take some photographs of the charismatic residents for an article in M Le Magazine du Monde, a French publication. Thurstan has shot for famous magazines including British Vogue, Arena, Homme+, i-D, Dazed and Love.

For this project Thurstan was looking to portray an optimistic and joyful view of older age, something that is often presented as sombre and cheerless.

Taking shots of residents who live happy and fulfilling lives in the village allowed him to see the importance of community, which is at the heart of village life and is one of the main reasons that residents choose to live at Castle Village.

These wonderful photos certainly capture the vibrant and vivacious residents that live here!
