“The perception of age” is a study I started to inquire what people think age looks like. This was my first attempt at story driven photography, at any sort of photo series. I wanted to explore the idea of what old and young look like, and what physical traits impacted that point of view. I wanted to capture a variety of people to show all the variables that factor into how old one looks. I interviewed more than 25 different people along the west coast ranging in age from 4-87. The study spanned a year and was intended to be an ongoing project. Due to uncontrollable circumstances this is all that remains of the initial project. I hope someday to continue this study.
