PortraitThe Art of Old Faces

wrinkles on your face
show the miles
in your journey

large cushions of flesh
sit swollen beneath the lids

aged with time,
gray hair, brittle and bare,
stand like the branches
of late autumn alders

indiscriminate, gravity’s pull
visibly viewed in the sagging skin

but hidden behind
the sparkle in your eyes,
and the quiet smile of your pursed lips,
are unseen passions and desires
which continue
to give you life

Fine Art Photography is a one of the genre that I like, want to explore the face with awesome texture, yupp it is enough to hunt some OLD FACE in Nusa Penida, close family and permission to be shot grandparents who already have a lifespan of more than 100 years, crazy!! … that old age is still Fresh and awesome, “I have 23 new old face-how can be like 100 years the remains of the road” SO WHAT its me guys …. 3 faces of the village of save, such as vacation tomorrow, tomorrow can be longer and return to my hometown, I wanted to add a collection of old faces, hopefully within a period of 2 years can collect hundreds of faces of Nusa Penida, friendly and most importantly the food treated. OK I hope is entertained by some of the last holiday pictures yesterday. See the next topic in my Journey yow.

    Hello! I absolutely love your photos and wondered if it was possible to use/purchase the black and white image of the old lady at the top of this page? It would just be for personal use in our home.

    I look forward to hearing from you.

    Many thanks
