We Can Be Heroes

Have you ever wished there were infinitely more hours in the day or you possessed superhero qualities that allowed you to achieve the impossible?
Photographer Sacha Goldberger saw the superhero in his 91-year-old grandmother, Frederika, who saved ten lives during Hitler’s reign.  Noticing her increasing depression and loneliness, Goldberger suggested a superhero photo shoot. Although initially hesitant, Frederika soon threw herself into the project and became an internet sensation.

You can view more photos here and here.  They are also available as a book.
