AGEnts of Change

The saying goes that “age is just a number.” In the fall of 2019, Las Fotos Project’s Digital Promotoras captured the spirit of this notion in their project, “AGEnts of Change” by documenting individuals who are challenging the way age is perceived and revitalizing the process of growing old. The inspiring community members highlighted in this work aren’t just elders, grandparents, aunts, or uncles — they are AGEnts of Change.
