Humorous Portraits of a Grandmother

A few years ago, photographer Sacha Goldberger discovered that his 91-year-old “mamika” (Hungarian for “grandmother”) named Frederika was feeling lonely and down. To put a smile back on her face, Goldberger suggested that they shoot a series of silly portraits featuring Frederika dressed up as a superhero. Frederika agreed, and Goldberger’s project Mamika was born. The photographs took the web by storm back in 2010, and the viral views gave Frederika a huge boost in cheer as people from all over the world sent encouraging messages to her.

  1. The entire concept is pretty good. The photos introduced shade and life to this grandma, and that's lovely. Wish I could be this active when I get this age and hire a real estate photography to making my days more fun and alive.
