Caroline Stanley admires a photo series of centenarians:

Outside of that Smuckers-sponsored Willard Scott segment on the Today Show and the occasional hyperbolic news item on the rise of STDs in rest homes, we rarely see imagery of people over a certain age — unless they’re famous, and being trotted out to accept a lifetime achievement award. Perhaps this is why we’re so smitten by the close-up portraits in Jahrhundertmensch, a new series by German photographer Karsten Thormaehlen that we spotted on PetaPixel.
