      Dear Carolyn,

      Thank you for your lovely comment! We are still searching for other places to show the series in its entirety, so if you are not able to attend the closing reception next Wednesday in Redhook, hopefully there will be other chances very soon!

      All our best,

    Great photos, but why seniors?

      Dear Sue, we are happy you like the series! If we had chosen to collaborate with teenagers, children, or younger adults instead, do you think you would have questioned it similarily? Either way, we are happy the work intrigues you.

      All the best,
      Riitta and Karoline.

    Why NOT seniors?

  5. Beautiful photos BECAUSE they are seniors! As a soon-to-be-sixty I see fabulous role models for me to follow over the next years. I’d like to post a few of these images on my fridge for their beauty and inspiration. I’ll be following these artists/photographers too. mj

  6. Gorgeous work. It wouldn’t be the same if it wasn’t seniors.

    Would it be possible to exhibit in Taiwan?

      Dear Yi Jen, thank you so much for your lovely comment and so sorry to reply so very late! We would absolutely love to exhibit in Taiwan, and not to mention to have the opportunity to photograph there! We are hoping to do go to Asia the coming spring, perhaps there will be a chance then!

      Warmest greetings from Riitta and Karoline.

  9. Fantastic work! I really adore this:)
    Would it be possible to exhibit in Taiwan as well?

      Dear Tonja, thank you so much for your wonderful comment and so sorry to answer so late! We are not so good at checking in on these comments fields, but we sure should! Your grandmother sounds absolutely fantastic! Does she live in Berlin as well? We would love to photograph her should our paths meet, and we are always open for new collaborators and venues to show our work and would love to hear from you if you have any good contacts in Berlin – it’s such a wonderful city! Send your dutch-indonesian grandmother our best wishes and wishing you a wonderful late summer! Best wishes, Riitta and Karoline.
