Still a dreamer…Old Memories and New Hopes

The Beauty of Age

New York Times today, December 1st, has a small blurb written by Sarah Moroz, about the British fashion photographer Tim Walker. He has a new project called “The Granny Alphabet.” A collection of pictures of grandmothers. some of his first models were his 80-year old neighbors. The book is meant for children and the models are dressed in a whimsical way and paired with the letters of the alphabet. “There is beauty and elegance in age that isn’t celebrated enough,” Mr.Walker said……In my opinion a major understatement, especially in this country where the “older woman” is just an old woman. So as I said once before, you can either become old and older or old and interesting. Given the choice, I choose interesting!!
