Irene van Nispen Kress: Silver
The general picture we have of older people does not seem to reflect today’s 60-70 year-olds at all. Driven by her own feeling of having a best before date, photographer Irene van Nispen Kress examined what it’s really like to be older these days. Over the period of six years she followed three older women in the intimacy of their day-to-day lives. With the help of her camera she has tried to provide a glimpse into the lives of women who, because of their age, are usually not in the limelight at all. These powerful images and stories illustrate why the passage of time can be a woman’s greatest asset.
