Alex Rotas challenges stereotypes about ageing through photography, speaking, broadcasting, writing, links with health organisations – and getting old herself. She loves tennis, swimming & running. Alex is working on a new project making a documentary film following five female masters athletes called The Maverick Generation. She is proud to be an ambassador for Active Ageing (Bristol).
I’m very grateful to Danielle Sellwood of Find it Film for making this short film (6 minutes) about my work, as part of the Maverick Generation project we’re both working on together. It pretty much sums up what I’m trying to do, and why.
Every year, I travel the world photographing, speaking and blogging about older sportsmen and women, and promoting active ageing. Here’s a taste of what I’ve been up to recently.
