The Ripening: Artists In Their 80s

There’s a fantastic article up on LightBox right now that begins: “Time is rough on a lot of life pursuits. Athletes dwindle. Dancers pull tendons. Politicians? It varies. But artists, if they work it right, they ripen.” The photo essay, which was commissioned by TIME, allowed photographer Eugene Richards to spend seven months photographing a number […]
