ben winkler photography ‘Silver Effect’
‘Age is Grace!’ - a personal project of photographer Ben Winkler exploring the beauty and social aspects of ‘silver hair’.
Grace and style - nothing to be attained but an attitude! We go through different phases of life, youth, young adult, parenthood, empty nester leading up to the grand phase of our lives. We have done it all, we’ve been there, now what? Joy all along the way, joy in the knowing that it’s alright to be our age, to make peace first and foremost with ourselves!No more chasing teen ideals. Being bombarded with media’s and society’s ideals of what we should be, feel, or look like we have lost ourselves, lost our identity, lost our souls! As our body changes so does usually our hair, from the first silver strings to shining white! This project aims to show that grey is not equal to dull & frumpy but to shine light on the beauty and radiance of maturity and the benefits that ensue in settling into your own self with peace & joy!
