Positive Aging

These photo portraits are said to represent the impact of aging and this feels like a negative — and a loss.   A narrow vision of beauty.   To me, the mature portraits could also represent other impacts — maybe wisdom, acceptance, clarity. resilience.  Other?  Makes me wonder if the older person knew that the photo was being taken to register the impact of aging.
