Age old issue: Magazine dedicated to the elderly

05 : 12 : 2013 Magazine : Old : Ageing

Portland – Independent quarterly magazine Kinfolk, has published its tenth edition – The Aged Issue – which focuses on generations that are often forgotten about in the media: older people who have stories, wisdom and knowledge to spare.

The issue is dedicated to ‘to all things that get better with time: loved ones, food, family traditions and a good bottle of wine’. Filled with essays and photo shoots that reflect on the subject of age, Kinfolk confronts a topic that many magazines tend to avoid.

‘While many magazines pressurise readers to hang on to youth, Kinfolk investigates how our lives are enriched by the people, meals and traditions of things past,’ says the website.

With family recipes handed down through the generations and profiles of grey-haired creatives, Kinfolk’s Aged Issue is a reminder that youth is wasted on the young and the aged deserve more respect.
