I am feeling the love for the young-at-heart these days. I was yesterday replenished by a spontaneous conversation with a Turkish octogenarian under an oak tree at the farmers’ market. She told me about her folk dancing and I told myself not to worry about my own dying grandfather.
In this spirit, enjoy these Juergen Teller photos of a man who has got my new friend by a decade. Ninety years of living renders strong and sweet and slightly rakish Ottavio “Tai” Missoni.
