Beauty And Wisdom: Redefining What Beautiful Means As We Age
Photojournalist, Robbie Kaye captures images of ageless beauty and weekly ritual in a culture that is obsessed with youth.
For her series, Beauty and Wisdom, photojournalist Robbie Kaye visited salons throughout the United States interviewing and capturing women in their 70’s, 80’s and 90’s during their weekly beauty parlor appointment. Each candid portrait highlights each woman’s personality, and changes the viewer’s perception of beauty and how it is perhaps…ageless.
As Kaye dug deeper, she discovered the profound integrity and grace of these older women, who viewed their salon time ‘not as a luxury, but as a necessity.’ More important than their weekly visit was their undying commitment to maintaining their lifelong ritual for camaraderie and rejuvenation.
