For several years Harriet Walter has been collecting images of older women whose faces and lives have inspired and moved her.

Some of these are well-known, some are facing the glare of public scrutiny for the first time.

In this collection of portraits by a variety of remarkable photographers, Harriet reflects on the process of ageing in a society where older women are often rendered invisible, and asks why their often extraordinary stories are not portrayed in the theatre and in film.

Grief and loss, joy and playfulness, humour and tenacity are all present in these pages, showing the grit and determination of older women looking age in the eye and offering some wonderful role models for younger women looking forward.
