Description - Wisdom by Andrew Zuckerman

Inspired by the idea that one of the greatest gifts one generation can give to another is the wisdom it has gained from experience, multi-award-winning photographer and filmmaker Andrew Zuckerman has recorded the thoughts and ideas of fifty of the world's most prominent over-65 year olds. To create profound, honest, and truly revealing portraits of these luminaries, Zuckerman has captured their voices, their physical presence and the written word.
