Celebrate mature women of all shapes, sizes, lifestyles and backgrounds at the 50 Over 50 portrait exhibit created and developed by local photographer Kelley Norcia. Norcia will unveil the results of her year-long body-positivity project on Sunday, September 19, 2021 from 2 – 5 pm at The Lace Factory in Deep River, CT. The portrait showcase will feature photographs of women over 50 years old that she captured during a “model for a day adventure” in her private studio. Norcia’s project was born from her philosophy that the more we see images of mature women who are happy, confident and unafraid of aging, the more we are encouraged to feel better about ourselves at any age.
“I set out to show how beautiful women are as they age, and it’s turned into something magical. So many women over the age of 50 feel that they are disappearing, that they are becoming invisible,” Norcia said. “So, I wanted to show that women at this age are still beautiful, still vibrant. Many are starting new careers, starting new businesses, thriving and giving back.”
Each portrait will be exhibited gallery style. Norcia hopes the younger generation will embrace the wisdom and strength offered. She also hopes the exhibit will show younger women that they can look forward to aging, and there is a new level of wisdom and beauty ahead. Currently an Associate Photographer by The Portrait Masters Awards & Accreditation, Norcia continues to be inspired by women who are not afraid of living their best life.
