Roller Coaster. Scenes from a Marriage expresses a variety of moments most long-term relationships face with intended honesty, intimacy, and humour. In western culture, growing old is often accompanied by feelings of shame. Terms such as losing your wits, becoming irrelevant and Åbeing abandoned haunt older individuals. Aimee McCrory s goal as a photographer is to raise awareness regarding the joys and the challenges of growing old together. Drawing upon her background in theatre, she created the series as a pseudo-documentary version of the relationship with her husband of forty-two years, Don. McCrory manipulates their personal domestic circumstances just enough to heighten elements of mystery. The viewer s array of responses may say more about their domestic relationships than about what can be seen in the actual photographs.
