Coming of Age – A Love Story
Looking on ourselves with love, kindness and compassion. Appreciating our lines, maps of our lives, etched into our skin.
The natural process of ageing means surrender on so many levels. The fifties are years of great transformation and I wanted to explore them with others and express them through black and white images that interplay woman with nature.
This body of work celebrates women in the second half of life and aims to shine a light on our courage, beauty and resilience. There is bravery in these intimate moments, in meaningful natural locations and with a significant object of their choosing.
Through the undertaking of this project, I am being transformed by the women I photograph. I am here as a witness, documenting their wisdom and bravery. Together we represent centuries of experience of being alive.
Each photograph pairs a diptych with reflections from my subjects. At the end of the session, I ask each subject to photograph me.
