Stylish Russian pensioners
Igor Gavar, a photographer from Omsk, takes photos of elderly people in the streets of Russian cities. Here are babushka and dedushka (grandma and grandpa), who have a sense of style and don’t forget their image, despite the circumstances.
For a long time the idea of beauty associated only with the cult of youth. Gavar’s project “Oldushka” is an attempt to expand our understanding of the age and style. These people were young when any manifestation of individuality was suppressed. However, even years later, they have a wonderful sense of style and dress up as if nothing had happened. Neither the circumstances, nor the power of stereotypes associated with age are able to overcome their desire to look beautiful.
