Granny Superstar! Sacha Goldberger's 'Mamika' at Wanted Gallery, Paris

Sometimes we might not be aware what our relatives have up their sleeves! Sacha Goldberger approached his grandmother and thus discovered an incredible secret – she is a superhero!

The almost 90-year-old Frederika climbs up walls, takes her dog for a fly and still finds the time to visit the beauty parlour and get changed into an appropriate outfit of course. She saves animals, uses her magical powers to bring cars to a halt, she conjures courage for everything, even for a pin-up pose.

Her grandson Sacha accompanied her during her daily routine of heroic deeds and made a picture series about it titled ‘Mamika’. The Wanted Gallery in Paris will be exhibiting the unbelievable pictures until the 30th of November.

Sacha Goldberger was born in 1968 and grew up with a French father and Hungarian mother. Sacha had a slightly different childhood from most, not necessarily because of his bi-lingual famliy but because of the fact that his relatives were never very fond of the beaten path. He was the creative director for CLM BBDO for quite some time, before opting for a photography career after all.
