Leisure world

Issue #43

If the world were controlled by the elderly, what would it look like? The answer: Leisure World, the largest gated retirement village in the world. For issue 43 Colors sent a team of writers and photographers to southern California to have a look. But Leisure World is not a reality most old people can afford. So for the second half of the magazine Colors commissioned its correspondents to interview and photograph residents of old age homes around the world. From China to Australia to Indonesia, Colors documented the reality of growing old in 2001.
