Humberto Tan - Tomorrow will be better

Maastricht

Fotomuseum aan het Vrijthof in Maastricht presents an exhibition by Dutch photographer and media personality Humberto Tan. With 'Tomorrow will be better', the museum shows an impressive selection of close-up portraits of 100-year-olds

For over three years, Humberto Tan traveled across the country to photograph more than a hundred people aged 100 and older. During the subsequent conversations, the passionate photographer asked them four of the same questions of life about their happiness, fears, life lessons, and dreams for the future. He also asked for a health tip.

The result is a beautiful collection of photographs and interviews, which are sometimes piercing, emotional, cheerful or sad. And mostly they are all of those at the same time. It shows an intriguing time image of the past century, and provides surprisingly mixed insights thanks to in total ten thousand years of life experience. The triptychs and interviews have been bundled in a stylish, 408-page coffee table book 'Morgen gaat het beter'.

Humberto Tan believes in the power of the elderly, and has been fascinated by this group for years. 'Tomorrow will be better', after a 1939 Willy Derby song, ties in with the common thread Tan began to discover during his conversations. In addition to the wisdom, energy and vitality of the centenarians, he was struck by the infinite optimism to keep looking ahead. Happiness is in the little moments, shared often with family and friends, that make life worth living.
