Living In Three Centuries: The Face of Age is a black and white photo project by Mark Story taken between 1999 and 2005. It includes 72 face portraits of centenarians and super centenarians (people who live more than 110 years) around the world.
‘The idea to photograph people who have lived in three centuries evolved over the course of the project. First, I was simply interested in taking portraits of people who appear worn beyond their years by living extraordinarily hard lives. Those experiences drew me to centenarians, and on to supercentenarians and their stories.’
