Danish photographer Keen Heick-Abildhauge fell in love with Russia years ago, mesmerized by the diversity of life hiding away in corners of the vast Eurasian country. Throughout his time living there, he'd amassed a fair share of stories from people of all ages. As he wrote in Bored Panda earlier this week, those stories were complex, often so much so that mere words didn't accurately capture their essences.
So he began his "100 Years Project," a comprehensive photography series that showcases individuals ages one to 100, all of whom were willing to share with the photographer their life experiences and ambitions. Heick-Abildhauge ended up meeting 230 people throughout the process of collecting stories and portraits, amounting to an assorted visual survey of people living and growing in Russia today. Together, four-year-old Daniel, 31-year-old Anastasia, 96-year-old Nadezda and many more illustrate the beauty of age in all its variations.
We reached out to Heick-Abildhauge to present his project, in its entirety, below. Check out the original post here.
