Heads is a series of portraits of senior citizens by from a unique perspective by photographer Nathan Perkel. Nathan says that the project was
initially spawned from my fascination of clothing trends within the senior citizen community of Brooklyn, New York. Upon finding and meeting the models, I became inspired by the graphic relationships held between the textures, colors, and patterns of the subjects' different hairstyles and outfits. The decision to fragment the subjects and their outfits, concentrating only on the backs of their heads and shoulders was made to show these parallels of illustrative elements.Nathan would like to thank the Pierrepont House for the Elderly for accepting his project with open arms, and we think that the participants must be pleased by these tender and respectful portraits.
