Sun City Poms - Shirley | Head On Photo Festival

Sun City Poms - Shirley

Photographer's Name: 
Todd Antony

Sun City is a retirement city outside of Phoenix, Arizona. Of the many social groups in the city are the Sun City Poms, a cheerleading group made up of women aged 57-83. I was fascinated with how Americans view the aging process; at one end of the spectrum are the child beauty pageants with children trying to fast-track their years; at the other end are these fabulous pom pom ladies who successfully and gracefully hold back the years.
