Maria Giorgia Lenzi (b. 1994) is a documentary photographer based in Florence, whose work is Interested in telling stories with an intimate and diaristic approach. These photographs are part of her ongoing series on age and femininity. The project explores how, in the youth-centred contemporary western society, older women face an underrepresentation that affects negatively the way ageing is experienced.
The exclusion of older women from female representation proves how women still struggle collectively to find a place in visual culture that is not intrinsically related to their appearance: such dysfunctional perspective continues to generate misconceptions around the ageing body.
