Book Description

26 July 2012
It was the amazing statistic that there are over 10,000 people aged over 100 in the UK that grabbed Chris Steele-Perkins attention and that number is growing rapidly. The Office of National Statistics predicts that 5% of people alive today in the UK will live to be over 100. That is 3 million people.

However, this book is not about statistics and the implications, it is about the people. In Fading Light Chris creates a portrait of this new generation with beautiful photographs and moving interviews. They are a mixed bunch of people who have seen many changes throughout their lives and who have their own personal stories to tell.

Fading Light is a moving book which highlights a special group of people who are part of the growing band of centenarians.

5.0 out of 5 stars A fascinating insight 4 Sep 2013
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
An amazing insight into the lives of those who have lived to over a hundred, some of the subjects happy, celebrating their many years of life, some sad and some confused, their words describing their own thoughts and feelings. What a lot we all have to learn from these individuals and their approach to their lives. Neither should their Carers be forgotten.
The pictures of each individual brought their words to life, words and picture forming a whole and enhancing the experience of this warm but not always happy book. How beautiful a centenarian can look.
I would highly recommend Fading Light: Portraits of Centenarians to all those who are fascinated by life and the passing time. It is a book to be shared and talked about.
