Intrigued by women getting older and losing their “sexy” status in the eyes of the opposite sex and others, Edo aims to challenge people’s perceptions through his striking portrait photographs. The photos – of 10 women between the ages of 67 and 79, contest the stereotyped view of ageing women as unattractive and ‘past it’.  The works will be accompanied by statements from the women themselves, explaining why they took part in the project and their attitudes to getting older, and still feeling beautiful.
