Today I want to introduce you to the absolutely amazing, life affirming and whimsical world of photographer Ari Seth Cohen’s Advanced Style Blog.
If you haven’t heard of Advanced Style, it is a fashion and street style blog focused on men and women of a certain age, if you will. Ari was inspired by his loving relationship with his super fashionable grandmother to begin photographing older women (and men!) on the streets of NYC where he lives. One of the driving forces of the Advanced Style Blog is Ari’s vision to make sure the elderly who often feel unseen by society, well, seen. Too often we overlook the beautiful and rich lives those who are older than us have lived because we live in a society that values youth above so much else.
Well, thankfully, we have Ari and his beautiful subjects. I urge you to follow Advanced Style on Instagram or Facebook to get daily updates. He has no specific style he likes to photograph, but there is always a common thread: his subjects are joyful and expressive in their dress and their actions.
