Bringing past and present together

Sweet 16 is a boutique coffee-table book celebrating the wisdom and experiences of women from around the world.

Professional portrait photographer Yve Lavine has compiled an inspiring collection of images and stories of women over the age of 60. She shines a light on the insights and reflections of older women to inspire us, and to make us wonder why our elders and older women, in particular, are largely invisible and pushed to the sidelines.

A former community educator, Lavine beautifully illustrates the richness older people,  women in particular offer our the wider community. Being seen and heard is a right for all members of society.

This book is for all interested in social equality and the inclusion of voices from all sectors of our community.
