Finding it hard to spend quality time with your nan? In need of a way to take her eyes off the latest episode of Coronation Street?

Well, if you’re anything like French photographer Sacha Goldberger, you’ll dress her up as a superhero and take a series of slick pics that turn her into a viral star. After his 91-year-old grandmother started suffering from depression, Goldberger came upon this novel idea as a way to lift her spirits.

To turn Frederika into Super-Nan, Goldberger utilised a combination of studio techniques and photo manipulation. Now the centre of attention, the bemused gran is unsure what to think of it all

"She doesn’t understand the reaction. For her it is fun to do the pictures. Some she likes, some she doesn’t care about," Goldberger said.
