Re: Does artistic ability decline as we age?

I'm 74, and my major interest now is artistic expression based on my photographs. When I was a teenager my idols were Cartier-Bresson and Ansel Adams, whose work I would love to have been able to emulate. But now I'm motivated more by my own "inner voice" which isn't tethered to the techniques or agendas of any of the acknowledged great masters. So in that sense I'm more creative and imaginative now than when I was younger.
