The Quiet World of Aging

Melinda Reyes | United States

"Vision is the art of seeing what is invisible to others" - Jonathan Swift..... I met Marion through a friend who wanted me to see her amazing art & paintings. We sat for quite a while talking abut life and art. But I noted a big change in her when I stopped talking to take pictures. She kept moving closer to me to find a reference on where I was. It was then that I realized she was blind but had not told me. I wondered why she had not told me something so important as I never would have known if I didn't pick up my camera. She said "I truly didn't think it mattered. It is not who I am, but what I am"
She is what inspires me.

"The Quiet World of Aging" is a Photo Documentary exploring and documenting the Elderly. The hope and intent of the project is to bring to light a population that is often hidden away, and sometimes forgotten. The images include a diverse group of men and women at various stages of aging. Each image is combined with an apsect of their story. It sets out to engage others in the lives of the elderly and draw more awareness to the struggles and joy of aging.
