Read full description of the books:
This was rather disappointing. I don't know who I would recommend it to. I'm only giving it three stars because you can leaf through it so quickly.
As for the photos, I do not think this was that successful as an artistic project. I appreciate that there was some level of diversity but there could have been more. Most of the women were conventionally attractive. Almost all the women had full heads of hair. There was some racial diversity, which I appreciated, but most of those women did not comment on it or have anything particularly insightful or different to say. There were no transwomen and only fleeting mention of non-heterosexual women. There were no visibly disabled women and no sign of infirmity besides mentions of cancer. I wanted a book that appreciated the beauty of age. Instead I got a book that mostly washed out its subjects with lighting and (either in camera or after effect) editing to blur or fully erase any signs of age. Wrinkles, age spots, sagging skin, etc. These are minimized or entirely erased in the photos to the point that go past ethereal and glowing into looking like outright ghosts. Also, the wash of color is reminiscent enough of sepia that it gives the impression these women are speaking from the past instead of vibrant, living figures in the present. As a reflection of the book's project, the photos utterly fail by prioritizing pride and glamour and refusing to embrace signs of age and finding the beauty in them.
As for the text, there were some worthwhile quotes here and there but you're really only getting a few lines at most so it feels underdeveloped. It's not a real journalistic endeavor. I wish she'd dug a little deeper. It feels very surface and not tremendously insightful. Some women just shout out charities they've started.
It's a good concept for a book that fails in the execution.
