Happy At 100: Expressive Portraits Capture The Wisdom And Joy Of Aging [Pics]
One artist's photography series of men and women over 100 years old is an extraordinary celebration of life.
Being alive for 100 years means you have witnessed much in your lifetime – from two World Wars, the first walk on the moon, to the invention of the computer. In Jahrhundertmensch (translates as Century Man), German photographer, Karsten Thormaehlen becomes acquainted with those centenarians who have seen it all. His beautiful portraits show both men and women over one hundred years old with stunning detail – with each wrinkle and glimmer in their eye, we see a story unfold on each face.
