Global Collaborate Project: 1 in 6 by 2030

I am thrilled to be participating in the global collaborative project, 1 in 6 by 2030, alongside renowned photojournalists. My photo essays Chapter One: 72, Jude Thilman: "A Life of Activism", Chapter Two: Work or Retire?, Rabbi Margaret Holub: "Being of Service" and Dr. Robin Serrahn: "What does work require of me now?" were recently published.

This project is a natural extension of my lifestyle photography which documents every day, real life moments.  If there's someone in your life whom you would like to celebrate through a photo essay, I invite you to start a conversation with me.

About the project

Photographers Ed Kashi, Ilvy Njiokiktjien and Sara Terry, from VII Photo, have been exploring aging-related issues, creating a multi-year visual archive that captures a unique moment in human history.

By 2030, Earth's population will be the oldest ever recorded, with 1 in 6 people aged over 60. Over the seven years leading to 2030, global photographers will depict life during this historic period. Launched in 2023, the project will release a minimum of two storytelling chapters annually. 

Chapter One: 72 focuses on the global median life expectancy, which has averaged 72 years over the past five years. Photographers worldwide documented the daily lives of 72-year-olds in their communities for this story.

Chapter Two: Work or Retire? By the year 2030, workers over the age of 55 are set to equal one-quarter of the global labor force. One study predicts that 150 million jobs worldwide will shift to that age group – a number almost equal to the entire working population of the U.S. today.
