Dorothy Pitman Hughes commissioned a new photograph for Gloria Steinem’s 80th birthday celebration in New York, which happened to coincide with her “Gloria Awards: A Salute to Women of Vision and 40 Years at the Ms. Foundation for Women.”
St. Augustine, Florida photographer, Dan Bagan, modeled his new portrait of the women on the iconic 1971 photograph by Dan Wynn, featured in Esquire magazine over forty years ago.
According to the photographer’s press release, the updated photo “represents Steinem’s and Pitman’s belief that women also need liberation from social discrimination against aging.” Signed copies of the new photograph, and any proceeds, benefit Pitman-Hughes Charles Junction community garden project, a 501C charity. This commissioned work also helped launch Dan Bagan’s Age of Beauty™ photo-essay project.
