07 Jul Woodstock New York Portraits | Noami Leaf Halpern
How does it feel to be 100 years old? Well I guess it depends on whom you ask. I was asked to photograph Noami Halpern on the occasion of her 100th birthday. We visited Noami at her home in Woodstock and spent about an hour with her. After a brief look around her house which is filled with mementos of her career, we came up with several images we wanted to create. She was game for whatever we wanted to do, which is always nice. Noami was completely there, very sharp and with-it, meaning to say, she seemed much younger then her 100 years would leave you to believe. She was funny and relaxed in front of the camera, a true pro. Noami has had quite the career, traveling the world dancing and teaching, I never did ask her how she ended up here in Woodstock but I’m glad she did. Happy Birthday Noami.
