I Am Here, I Am Alive,I Am Creative Strong and Wise!

I want to start today’s post by posing a  question: Should a picture of a stylish old lady or gentleman be an extraordinary thing? I love what I do, and I started Advanced Style to break down stereotypes about aging and the elder population, but shouldn’t the image of a strong,active,joyful elder person be the norm.?That is what I see in my world, but the truth it is not the norm.  Before I started the blog I looked up “old lady” in Google image search and most of what  I found were depressing and mocking portraits of older women. Go ahead and try and see what you find. From my experience, people become more confident,wise,and comfortable in their own skin as they age. This allows them to freely express themselves in terms of style and creativity resulting in “Advanced Style”.Maybe that’s why I shoot so many people in colorful clothes as if their bright outfits are signaling, I am here, I am alive, I am creative,strong and wise!
