100 Years.

Thursday, February 26, 2015

In a series he calls The 100 Years Project, Danish photographer Keen Heick Abildhauge shares 100 shots of 100 people who range in age from just one year to, yes, 100. Each participant has told him about a dream or a passion — the one-year-old's mother, for instance, says that her son's greatest joy is cars; 15-year-old Sofia dreams of going to space (and if that fails, learning to play the saxophone); 21-year-old Demyan wants to make a home by the sea; and, capping it all off, century-old Evdokiya says simply: "I dream of walking by myself, being independent and alive."

Paw, I think so, too!

Dakota, thank you! And such a big question — hmm. I think I would say "to live a creative life"…but I'm going to keep thinking about it!

This project to me is such a nice pairing of words and images and makes me wonder what my quote would be! I can definitely relate to Demyan and Evdokiya

I just read through every single dream, and loved every single one. Remembering to dream today, and always. Thanks for sharing this!
