The Beauty of Aging

People in their nineties have seen much of life. It is written on every line and embedded in every wrinkle on their faces. These people have likely outlived their spouses, friends and siblings. Stories of times recalled rest inside their smiles.  Fewer people are interested in their accumulated stories, advice and even their physical appearance.

The Beauty of Aging involves creating images of people in their nineties in their realistic splendor. In addition to the portraits, which attempt to  capture individuals in their residences,  subjects were asked to provide the photographer with one piece of advice to young people just beginning in their lives.  Each of these portraits reveals both through the portraits and people's words a snapshot of their lives revealed through photographs and words.
