It’s not often that photographs of seniors reflect a playful attitude or beautiful image. But to Norwegian photographer Karoline Hjorth andFinnish artist Riitta Ikonen, nothing could be more lovely- or natural- than posing seniors in elaborate costumes against the backdrop of gorgeous natural settings. Their photography project, entitled Eyes as Big as Plates, has been ongoing for several years, originally inspired by Nordic folktales but now morphed into a larger mission to highlight older individuals who might otherwise be marginalized and to question the relationship between man and nature. The portraits are visually stunning, and captured in a recently published book that you can purchase Here. In addition to showing their photographs in galleries around the world, this artistic duo also has an Instagram and a Facebook page. You can read more about this evolving project Here and watch them work with some of their senior subjects Here.
