Join me as we celebrate the beauty, strength, and wisdom of women over 50. 

Here is the first group of women to join the project this year - read their thoughts on aging

and see them in both formal portraits and fun outtakes.
As the year goes on, we will continue to share the images and words of more amazing women,

culminating in a gallery-style exhibition in 2021.

the women

the 2021 count begins...
