using the juxtaposition of two related photos, miller's taken years after arbus', i wanted to create a witty yet impactful image to bring awareness to one of the many things people can't control: time. in this case, as people grow older, they forget to take care of themselves and their loved ones, to prepare for, solemnly put, when they pass away. i wanted to give this prudential ad sentimentality and humor without losing it to seriousness.
