The Dutch photographer Erwin Olaf, from his wonderful collection Mature, 1999. This work beautifully captures ageing femininity and challenges the depictions of older women that we are so used to seeing in western societies.
This post is a continuation of my earlier ones, see here and here. There are many more portraits in this collection; click the link at the top of this post to view them all.
I adore the photograph below, it encapsulates so well the research that I carry out, but I haven’t yet found which Erwin Olaf collection it comes from. Thanks to Kroutchev Planet Photo for the image.
