Rejecting the “Cult of Youth”

I really love these images and what they represent. Sexuality in older age is extremely stigmatized because many people have trouble accepting that people don’t grow out of being sexual beings. Embrace your age and your sexuality, forever & always.

“I am tired of the cult of youth. The cultural rejection of old age, the stigmatization of wrinkles, grey hair, of bodies furrowed by the years. I am fascinated by Diana Vreeland, Georgia O’Keeffe and Louise Bourgeois, women who have let time embrace them without ever cheating. Society today condemns this, me, I celebrate it. For this session of fine jewelry, I imagined a man and a woman who had been together for a long time, faithful to each other and always incandescent with desire.” -Forever Love by Tom Ford
