LEO - Ageing Reframed Series
"I was asked if I had thought about the appearance of my tattoo with ageing and wrinkles..."
In a way, our wrinkles and scars are like tattoos. They are a representation of our experiences and the journey we've been on. And, just like tattoos, they don't lose their meaning over time. In fact, as we age, our wrinkles and scars become even more significant, and they help us to reflect on our lives and all that we've accomplished.
Our tattoos, wrinkles, and scars are all part of the story of our lives. They should be celebrated and embraced. Whether you're proud of your tattoos, your wrinkles, or your scars, they are all a testament to the journey you've been on and the person you've become.

Pictures have the power to tell a story, and changing the picture can change the story. Positive ageing advocate and So50 founder, Magno Barros, uses his unique blend of photography
and AI to challenge traditional views of ageing.
Magno's images showcase the beauty and strength of older adults, instead of perpetuating negative stereotypes of frailty and decline. His subjects are depicted as proud, confident,
and independent, with their maturity – such as grey hair and wrinkles – accentuated and celebrated. The jewellery they wear symbolises the wealth of knowledge and wisdom they have gained through life experience.
By embracing technology, Magno sets an example of how it is never too late to take on new challenges and experiences. At 56 years old, he is a testament to the idea that age is
just a number and that it is possible to continue growing and evolving, no matter what our birth certificate may say.
