These senior home residents are recreating some classic album covers
Now, a senior home in the U.K. is gaining some attention for its creativity. The residents of the Sydmar Lodge Care Home are spending their time in quarantine recreating some iconic album covers from artists including blink-182, Queen, the Clash and more. The facility's activities coordinator Robert Speker is sharing the recreations on Twitter.
Due to the pandemic, the Sydmar Lodge Care has been under quarantine for four months. As elderly people remain some of the most at-risk individuals to get coronavirus, the Sydmar Lodge Care Home will likely remain on lockdown for a while.
So, with all of the newfound downtime, many employees and residents of the facility are finding new ways to stay creative.
Speker's first tweet includes the recreation of Adele's 21, Swift's 1989, Bruce Springsteen's Born in The U.S.A and the Queen II covers. The recreations not only feature images of the facility's residents, but also some twist details that make the album artwork more personal.
For example, Adele's 21 album cover has been recreated to say Vera 93, hinting at who the woman in the photo is and what her age is. As well, the recreated Queen II cover features the facility's caregivers and has been appropriately renamed Carers.Enema of the State
Speker has also launched a GoFundMe page to raise donations to continue on with the photoshoots and other projects at the facility. All of this will greatly help the residents at the home and give them something to look forward to.
"Elderly people will remain in lockdown for a long time and I want to make their time as happy and full of enjoyment and interest as possible," Speker says.
