Jade Beall has an eye for the divine. The Tuscon, AZ photographer snaps studio portraits of nurse mothers, unconventional families and interracial couples. Through her eyes, her lens, spectators ensure a world in which everyone is beautifully unique and worthy of love.
In the wake of a series documenting every kind of mother, Beall has received unexpected notoriety with a much older demographic. A decide of her photos focusing on the love of a nude, 70 -something couple have garnered attention from all regions of the internet.
Gerry, 75, and Darwin, 70, have been together for more than two decades. Although their bodies have changed and sagged immeasurably, the pair say they’ve grown closer than ever. Their love was so palpable that Beall told the press it brought her to tears in the studio, and it certainly glistens from the images like a light of sunlight.
They’re so in love. They started kissing a few periods and I was like,’ Damn, I haven’t kissed like that in years! ’
The couple, who wrote Beall a letter she published to Facebook after the photos began attracting attention, say they hope their images help others understand the body doesn’t stop being beautiful and worthy of love after it ages.
Although I was not ugly earlier in my life, as I look back at photos today, I supposed I was. It is so strange that I can look at the 75 year-old body in your photograph with some distance and love and feel great about her strength, her good health, and yes her allure to the man she loves.
And if I can do it, any-body can.
To date, Beall’s photographs have more than 3,000 Facebook likes.
Take a look for yourself 😛 TAGEND
