Laurie Mortara PhotographyIn my photo, “Caged Beauty,” (left) a young woman’s eyes are defiant as her external beauty fades and she is caged by Time. I know this feeling well. With time the body stiffens, the senses dull, and limits are placed on physical ability. Why is it this shell that people see and not the young soul inside? Modern Medicine may help, Healthful living will help, but still the body ages and is what most people judge us by first. For me photography helps. Behind the lens I am an ageless participant in a moment of time and the photograph does not tell my age. Hopefully you continue to find your own keys to escaping the cage. Enjoy these photos and find time to make some of your own!
