In Praise of Aging - Book

An interview on "Aging" with a German Magazine, led Gerda Lerner, the pioneer of women's history, to write an article on the subject. This in turn inspired her to collaborate with her friend Sandy Wojtal-Weber, a professional photographer, on a poetic and visual creation that is this book. At the time Gerda was considering moving into a retirement community and Sandy was creating a new career for herself as a freelance art photographer. Writing and life interacted, as did metaphor and image, to make this book broadly appealing to readers of all ages.

" In whatever one does, there must be a relationship between the eye and the heart. With the one eye that is closed, one looks within. With the eye that is open, one looks without."  - Henri Cartier Bresson
