The artist’s “Ageless Beauty” portraits reveal people who’ve seen history go by, from wars to peace, isolation to development.
As he explored Vietnam, Réhahn became fascinated with the overlooked beauty of the eldest members of the communities he visited. He began taking portraits for this project that celebrated the marks of age and brought them into high-relief. In opposition to society’s traditional idea of beauty, these photographs were not edited to smooth wrinkles and erase years. Instead, they challenge the very concept of what is beautiful and why.
