Thanks to those of you who came to the show. If you didn't come and want to see the videos, here they are. If you did come, you may want to see them again!

Whilst all your photos will remain on this website (and more can be added at any time), in keeping with the name of the project, I am only going to be exhibiting 50 images and they have been chosen based purely on the quality and size of each image. Even ones that I've taken myself of some of you, haven't made the mark! So if you come along to the show (and I hope as many of you will do) please don't be offended if your photo isn't included in the final show!
This is an interesting article - check it out!
And I love this by Ann Karpf
You can get work as a model if you're older – as long as you don't look it. Visible signs of age remain, for the most part, so shameful that you need to take all possible steps to erase them. Rhodes thinks that 45- to 60-year-old models have it hardest, unsure whether to try to look younger, or to go the older model route. Digital retouching has become the norm, but some models are prepared to take more drastic measures. When Carmen Dell'Orefice, who sounds like a Scunthorpe drag artist but, at 82, is the world's longest-working model, was asked by Vogue whether she had had cosmetic surgery, she said, "If you had the ceiling fall down in your living room, would you not go and have a repair?"
I'd say yes, most probably, sadly <---click to read the article
I'm delighted to have been contacted by Grace at Country Wives asking for information for the soon to be up and coming exhibition at Brighton University. It's not on until June but we are beginning to make plans for it, and that, along with other work required for my course, is what has kept me away from here for a while. But I will be back, more frequently - I hope!

Firstly my apologies (if anyone has missed me!) for the lack of updates here. I've been very busy with university work and its taken me in other directions. I will try and update this more often; I've not forgotten my 50over50 women and this might be of interest to many of you. Do post any comments on the article here, if you fancy it!
This looks to be a very interesting article.
What say you?
