Marilyn Stafford epitomises what it means to live a longer, fuller life.
From finishing drama school, to photographing Albert Einstein as well as spending the day with the former Prime Minister of India Indira Gandhi, there is no end to the incredible twists and turns in this fascinating woman’s life.
Now, in her later years, she is working tirelessly to empower women with her photography competition which aims to inspire and make a difference in the world and to people’s lives. Marilyn is a true change maker herself. She is a 96 year old going on 26 years. What really is her secret to longevity? Might it be art?
“I survived despite my art, not because of it.” – Marilyn Stafford

Such an amazing (and modest) woman - who inspires through her passion telling stories with her camera. Many incredible opportunities- which she took (loved the coincidence with the Indian writer) & which led her to so many places & memorable images. It is one of the most fascinating talks I have ever heard (and she continues to take photographs & exhibit).
