Old men sitting at a bar

When you hear that a photographer went around taking photographs of old men in bars, you don’t immediately shiver with anticipation at the potential wonders you might behold. That’s because old men in bars in the British Isles are a pretty unimpressive lot in comparison to their Italian counterparts.

Paduan photographer Piero Martinello did just that in a recent project, the products of which are pretty stunning.

This photo in particular, I found captivating. I want to be photographed like this when I’m eightysomething.
