Donna Waxman and Hamilton Council on Aging present Portraits of Aging

The Hamilton Council on Aging (HCoA) is committed to enhancing the public image of older adults. Older adults often self report that they feel invisible in society when they are in fact the most heterogeneous “group” of individuals with immense differences in background, culture, interest, ability, experience, and even age!  With support from Ontario Seniors’ Secretariat Community Grant Program 2018, HCoA invited 17 local older adults to share their experiences and perspectives on aging through photographs and interviews.  Photographer Donna Waxman was recruited to create visual portraits of participants.  Donna’s empathy and sensitivity with her subjects and skill with her art allows her to capture the spirit, resilience and ongoing engagement of these individuals. Donna makes the invisible visible.  The resulting portraits provide viewers with a visual bridge that enables them to transcend ageism.

About the library

The first Hamilton Public Library building opened on September 16, 1890 by the Earl and Countess of Aberdeen on the north side of Main Street West. In 1913, a new main library opened. This building was replaced in 1980 by Central Library, at the current location on York Boulevard.

In 2010, Central Library re-opened after approximately 18 months of renovations. Central Library opened with a newly revitalized first floor, which includes a Community Living Room that takes advantage of natural light. The Ontario Library Association honoured Central in 2012 with an Architectural and Design Transformation award.
