All the interviews in this book aimed to capture the life lessons of an older generation. As a photographer, I saw that the wisdom of these people was present not only in their words but in their faces, bodies, and spirits. I aimed to capture the beauty of their wrinkles, smile lines, and unique voices. I chose photographs that showed each individual where they felt happiest and in a peaceful state of being. They all took ample time and distance to think carefully about the words they would impart to me, and eventually, whoever finds this book in their hands.
