Having photographed girls and women for years, I am very aware
of the ways in which women are constantly evaluated and judged.
This collection of work comes from my desire to explore what it means
to be a woman over 50 in America today, with the conflicting emotions
of feeling invisible to the world yet feeling more confident in myself,
and my voice, then ever before.
I began by photographing other women over 50 but early on realized that I needed to
explore my own reality, and express my interpretation of growing older.
The commonality of experience is at the heart of this work, and
creating a space for women without judgement.
