It was the amazing statistic that there are over 10,000 people aged over 100 in the UK that grabbed Chris Steele-Perkins’ attention – and that number is growing rapidly. The Office of National Statistics predicts that 5% of people alive today in the UK will live to be over 100. That is 3 million people. However, this book is not about statistics and the implications, it is about the people. In Fading Light Chris creates a portrait of this new generation with beautiful photographs and moving interviews. They are a mixed bunch of people who have seen many changes throughout their lives and who have their own personal stories to tell. Fading Light is a moving book which highlights a special group of people who are part of the growing band of centenarians.
