Women Over 50

Andrea Birnbaum | United States


Having photographed girls and women for years, I am very aware of the ways in which women are constantly evaluated and judged. This collection of work comes from my desire to explore what it means to be a woman over 50 in America today, with the conflicting emotions of feeling invisible to the world yet feeling more confident in myself, and my voice, then ever before. I began by photographing other women over 50 but early on realized that I needed to explore my own reality, and express my interpretation of growing older. The commonality of experience is at the heart of this work, and creating a space for women without judgement. Andrea Birnbaum
