These Hands

Mary Ellen owns a beauty salon in Santa Monica, California and she calls it “Mary Ellen’s.”  She has been in business for almost 45 years and today I had the privilege of photographing a few of her clients. She attended Santa Monica City College and so did Irene, her daughter, who has been a hairstylist and working with Mary Ellen for 36 years.  Today I met a 79 year old woman who came to the states from Egypt and an 88 year old woman who was a well-known opera singer in her day.  I am so lucky that I get to interview and photograph these women and share their stories with you. Oh, and by the way,  these are Mary Ellen’s hands and she is 76 years young.
