Otten's shots of elderly women in France, Spain, and the UK typify her interest in documenting the people and things that most of us overlook. She explains that in the Netherlands, grandmothers are typically kept out of sight, stowed away in homes for the aged; seeing them in the streets of cities like London and Lyon reminded her of how powerful and independent they can be, and how different their tempo is from that of their surroundings. "This image is really moving to me," she says, while noting that in most of her other shots, "no matter how old the granny is, and no matter how crooked she walks, she always carries a lot of groceries."
