Marion Gambin “Our old happy days”
First city of its kind, « Sun City » was born from Del Webb’s imagination in the 50’s in Arizona, USA. City exclusively devoted to the seniors and built in the middle of the desert where grounds are very cheap, these retirement communities always attracts more and more old people who aim to live happy up to the end ! Recreation centers welcome the retired people in fitness gyms or in swimming pools, as well as in club where they play chess or become pompom girls! Everything is perfect in the « Sun City » but one problem persists: people die a lot! Therefore the inhabitants permanently have to promote their city to welcome newcomers, because they definitely need them to carry on.
Marion Gambin was born in 1985 in Paris, where she currently lives and works. After obtaining an undergraduate degree (BFA) in the Beaux-Arts of Toulouse, she joined the photography section of the ENS Louis-Lumière from which she graduated with a Masters in Photography in June 2011.
