Advanced Style film celebrates vivacious, in vogue seniors
Photographer Ari Seth Cohen and one of his favourite models, Joyce Carpati, join guest host Wab Kinew to discuss the street style of fashion-savvy seniors and why one need not look young to look great.
For years, Cohen has been taking pictures of older folks who literally stop him in his tracks -- and as the appetite for diverse images of aging grows, so too does his project. Advanced Style has gone from blog to book to feature-length documentary.
"We wanted to show a different picture of aging -- a really positive, joyful image of getting older," says Cohen, adding that society doesn't pay enough attention to those aging creatively.
