Photographer Thelma Pepper captured the 'ordinary women' of Saskatchewan

From the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (CBC), a profile of 98 year old photographer Thelma Pepper.
I recommend you set aside 25 min and listen to the linked documentary produced by David Gupnik.

https://www.cbc.ca/radio/thesundayed...ewan-1.4866237

From the article:

Thelma Pepper didn't pick up a camera until she was 60. But in the four decades since then, she has published four books of photography, and her work has been exhibited widely.

Pepper, 98, has dedicated her late-found career to capturing the lives of Saskatchewan farm wives, residents of rural Prairie communities and seniors in nursing homes — people often overlooked by society.

She said:
I think if you find something you love, it's just so exciting. You can develop that later in life. Your brain is a bowl of energy. If you activate that creativity, it gives you energy.

My cousin's daughter 'found' me on 23 and me. I didn't even know she existed. She lives in Saskatchewan and I'll seed her this article. Ms Pepper is an inspiration.

Thanks for reminder. I have article opened days ago, looked at pictures, but haven't finished reading.

My father was guit from work this year at close to 80 age. My mother has him assigned to work on dacha and now he can't walk much, I wish they are both into photography, You can't hurt your back with camera, with dacha my back was hurting for months,

You are right, I'm having a hip replaced in December. Now all I can do is photography and read. I can still watch TV but I have hundreds of channels but can't find anything to watch. Ms Pepper has inspired me to get out and photograph.

Good for her! 60 is a great time to start something new.

I've been trying to capture women for over half a century. They're pretty quick! The trick is to let them capture you

Wonderful. I think it must have been Mrs Driol who was the one who told her husband she had to work. Still in her apron.
