When I reach my nineties, I want to be like Frederika Goldberger. The grandmother (known to her family as Mamika) and retired style consultant turned cult figure who likes to dress as a super-hero for grandson, Sacha Goldberger's wonderful photographs.
'For me, taking the photographs is a way of making her live forever,' says Sacha Goldberger, ' Because then everyone can see her and know a bit about her. And then, when she is no longer here, I won't feel too alone. All this is about making her eternal. It is a tribute to her.'
The book, Mamika: Grande Petite Grand-Mére is out now.
