Jenny Hueston is a Los Angeles based photographer. Born and raised in Ontario, Canada she moved to London and then New York where she learned through assisting. She is drawn to photographing people in their environments, capturing unseen moments and discovering subcultures. All photos were taken in Long Island in 2012. Today we take a look at her recent series titled, Senior America.
In this project, I was interested in exploring older women aging with confidence as we are inundated with images of women in a much younger slice of life. After researching organizations for senior women I came upon the Ms. Senior America association whose motto is ‘Aging with Elegance’. I was drawn to the idea of seeing women 60 plus embracing age and community in a format usually associated with youth and stereotypes. This section of the project is a look at the Ms. Senior New York branch contestants, pageant winner and the Seasoned Steppers who are a dance troop involved with the organization.
