Old People Wearing Nature


This project by Riittai Konen and Karoline Hjorth is possibly the greatest thing I've ever seen.  It's called Eyes as Big as Plates and if you live in New York, you need to go see this. It will be at Brooklyn’s Recess from February 15 – April 26, 2013.  When I'm an old person, you can bet I will do anything to participate in projects like this.

This is fantastic! Wow. I'm speechless. The second photo from the bottom (moss) one is my absolute favorite.

While all these photos are great, that first one is amazing. The smile on that woman's face is so cute, and her eyes are so piercing!

these took my breath away....maybe they hit me so severely because in my own Art I've pondering on how we are all part of the earth, and go back to the earth ...and because your subjects are older...it doesn't matter, though, does it. ha. I do know, though, that theses photos are stunning and thoughtful. so very very cool.
