Street Photographer Ari Seth Cohen shows us who’s cool. I’ve never been a fan of portraying seniors as “characters” and I particularly dislike any description of us that teeters on the edge of condescension. That’s not what Mr. Cohen does. In fact, he does the opposite.
What if, say, a photographer with a fresh vision and true respect for his subjects shows us some stand-out individuals who appear to be getting older while doing what many of us aspire to do – being true to ourselves as we age.
I hope Mr. Cohen keeps taking his pictures. I respect these seniors and their commitment to artistic expression.
