Text and photographs by Irene Borins Ash

They’re dynamic senior citizens energetically marching to the beat of time. Irene Borins Ash, a consultant on aging, captures their vitality in a series of photographs with biographical sketches and life philosophies in a beautiful new book of text and photographs.

Her subjects include a diverse cross-section of the population ranging from the famous to the physically and intellectually challenged. Included are June Callwood, David Suzuki, Mayor Hazel McCallion, Dr. Jean Vanier and Oscar Peterson. Also among the fifty people featured from many walks of life are a homeless person, a nun, and an Indian swami.

These extraordinary seniors inspire with their stories of confronting life’s challenges and adversities. Striking black and white photographs accompany text that demonstrates the possibilities of aging wonderfully, with purpose, joy and achievement. Inspired by a photography exhibit currently touring the country, this amazing book has political, social and multicultural relevance to people young and old.

Irene Borins Ash is a social worker who has worked with older people for many years in Toronto. She writes, “I observed there was a commonality, a thread that linked all these people together despite differences in race,cultural, socioeconomic and religious backgrounds. They’re connected to their communities, they maintain a positive attitude, and they’re not self-absorbed. They are more concerned about others around them than about themselves.”
