In the magazine section of the Guardian of 1.11.14 there are full page portraits of 5 men and 4 women centenarians. In Black and White photographed by David Bailey they illustrate interviews by Sally Williams.
The magazine section Le Monde, 8.11.14, publishes 9 portraits of old women by Richard Burbridge. Here we have highly staged coloured portraits with eccentric make up. The women are beautiful and the most lined, not retouched, photo graces this Special Beaute section of the magazine called The Prime of Life. (La Fleur de L’Age)
Are we entering a new age? Should we mind that Burbridge photos are captioned with the details of the make up products? Will we the not so beautiful old women feel inadequate?
