We’ve been saying it forever: Guys over 50 are super sexy. Now, California-based photographer Tommy Wu and multimedia designer Alan Reade (known professionally as Tommy+Alan) have produced evidence to support that claim.
The “Men Over 50 Project” celebrates hot everyday guys who have made it past the big 5-0. The project features both photos of the men as well as accompanying one to two minute audio clips.

“Many of the men in this project talk with us frankly about both their triumphs and their struggles,” Tommy+Alan write in their artists’ statement. “We felt it was important for you to hear their stories in their own words.”
The interviews include stories of surviving illnesses, struggling with societal conventions, dealing with ageism, and what it means to get older in a youth-obsessed culture.
Scroll down to see some of the photos from the project, and be sure to visit Tommy+Alan’s website to see more and to hear the interviews. You’ll be glad you did.
