Photographer’s Superhero Grandmother Comes Out of Retirement

Meet, Mamika, a geriatric with superhero powers. Well, kind of. French fashion and advertising photographer Sacha Goldberger employed the tricks of his trade to cheer up his gran and bring a smile to the faces of the rest of us too. Donning her in a cape and spandex, he used trick photography to plant her in all sorts of humorous situations such as walking the walls of tall buildings and “flying” her dog. Gran was such a good sport she not only posed for the pictures, but was involved in the design and layout of the entire concept too.
