Brookdale Senior Living, one of the most prestigious independent and assisted living facilities in Santa Fe invited me to photograph 15 of their residents for a program that Brookdale was featuring called, “Ageless Beauty”. Last fall, we set up a studio in their game room and one by one, hair and makeup ready, they were photographed–some with a prop to suggest their interest (a painting, a golf club, a credit card, a hershey bar) and others just as they were. I hope I captured their beauty and grace, proving once again that beauty has no age limit. These residents are in their mid 80’s and 90’s. Bio’s accompanied each framed portrait and the attendees to the show remarked how great it was to hear about the accomplishments of these people.
The exhibition held in February 2018 was very well attended by the Santa Fe community, the residents and their families. We plan on taking this exhibition around other venues in Santa Fe. All photography © Daniel Quat Photography
