Cosmetic and beauty photo shoots frequently focus on the young, but Beauty and Wisdom by Robbie Kaye defies that notion. The photo series focuses on seniors who are 70 and above as they go about their weekly ritual of visiting the beauty shop. Kaye highlights the women's personalities in each shot using close-up portraits and candids.

Robbie Kaye, writing about this often-overlooked generation of women at Lens Culture, noted, "Ironically, these are the women who opened doors for future generations of women to walk through, yet they are now part of an invisible generation."

Beauty and Wisdom by Robbie Kaye is a photographic journey of stylish boomers and seniors at beauty parlors in cities like Memphis, Santa Fe, Houston and Los Angeles.
