super mamika

This series of photographs by French photographer Sacha Goldberger brought a big smile to my face yesterday afternoon. Goldberger had his depressed grandmother become Super Mamika for "a series of outlandish superhero photos. The result was very theraputic for the 91-year-old woman."

Initially, she did not understand why all these people wrote to congratulate her. Then, little by little, she realized that her story conveyed a message of hope and joy. In all those pictures, she posed with the utmost enthusiasm. Now, after the set, Goldberger shares that his grandmother has never shown even a trace of depression.
