Photographer Reveals What The Human Body Looks Like At Age 100+

When we think of human beauty, most of us think of someone young and sexy and in their low to mid 20s. But photographer Anastasia Pottinger makes a strong case for the idea that someone over 100 years of age can also be beautiful in her beautiful and fittingly named “Centenarians” photo series.

Surprisingly, the idea for this photo series came when Pottinger was approached by a 101-year old woman who wanted to be photographed in the nude. The only condition – that she couldn’t be identified from the photos. The black and white photos that they created are undeniably beautiful, and seem to encapsulate the hallmarks of old age – wisdom, patience, time, experience, and yes, mortality.

The response to the images has been remarkable,” writes Pottinger on her website. “Viewers are visibly moved by what they are looking at. Whether it’s wondering, ‘is this what I’m going to look like?’ or remembering a loved one – the response seems to be universally emotional on some level.
