Old age is a concept that lends itself to visual display. This chapter begins with a review of some well-known examples of series of photographs of old age. We then discuss picture libraries and analyse the captions and content of 320 images of old age available in one popular library.
We discuss how it associates old age with being elderly and receiving care services. In this way the picture library reinforces stereotyping images of old age.
