Smiles never grow old

Ilya Nodia explains his project : “This summer, the company Senior Group invited me to create with them a small but very touching and beautiful project about the smile. We visited several nursing homes, where for a few hours turned their cozy living in a mobile studio. As you know, the usual schedule was completely disrupted excitement and preparation for our meeting – the terms of flying straw hats elderly ladies were chosen outfits, powdered cheeks and great grandfathers tease their beards and corrected medals. A wonderful experience and a great atmosphere created by the smiles that never grow old.”
