Flesh after 50: The gains of age

Did you hear the tale of the photographer, the gynaecologist and the art curator? Probably not, so it’s about time that you did. Earlier this year I was privileged to visit an exhibition which resulted from the collaboration between these three remarkable women. Titled Flesh after Fifty, it all started with Martha Hickey, Professor of Obstetrics and Gynaecology, at the University of Melbourne. Martha was frustrated that she couldn’t ‘get through’ on the importance and meaning of menopause.
