Backstories: Women of a Certain Age
In literature, a backstory provides clues to character. These photos are of women of a certain age who caught my eye in the passing crowd on the streets of Manhattan. You can tell so much about them from the shapes of their retreating figures. We see that each has a unique stance, a style, a way of walking, and a way of dressing. Who are they? These Backstories challenge our imaginations to discern – or invent – a story about the person, one that represents at least a single moment in time.
