Photographer IIya Nodia and retouch artist, Irina Muravyova who are both based in Moscow, decided to embark on a beautiful portrait project aptly named, The Smile Never Gets Old.
This summer, Russian based company, the Senior Group, approached the creative duo with a brief quite different to their everyday projects.
They were asked to capture happy portraits of the elderly from the nursing homes they now reside in. IIya and Irina travelled to several nursing homes transforming the cozy communal areas into mobile studios where the ladies had their cheeks powdered and the gentlemen had their beards trimmed.
Together they captured this beautiful collection of images that celebrate life and the art of happiness, regardless of one’s age.
