The Faces of a Hundred Years – Portraits by Karsten Thormaehlen


xcn

To live to 100 is no common feat. Karsten Thormaehlen made a project of photographing over 40 people who have achieved a triple digit life. The faces in these portraits are filled with so many emotions of a long life lived, it’s hard to put into words. Under all signs of age, each individuals personality still shine through.

 

For another fun project honoring those who are older but active, check out Thormaehlen’s “Silver Heroes” Series.
