Golden years: Stunning photos capture elderly people’s most precious moments – from enduring love for their partners to quality time with grandchildren
- Sujata Setia started became passionate about taking their pictures last year

A photographer has revealed a set of stunning photos – which show elderly couples embracing and also special moments with their grandchildren.
Sujata Setia, from London, started taking pictures of elderly couples after shooting images of her daughter and grandmother together. She realised how emotional and tender the photos were and went out of her way to find her next models.
The pictures, which all have natural light in them, show elderly couples playing chess and reading to their grandchildren. They also show tender moments between couples – which show them kissing or embracing in a hug.
Talking to the Metro.co.uk she said: ‘I started photographing elderlies a year ago. Slowly this subject became a passion for me. I spent all of last year photographing elderlies with their grand and great-grandchildren and that led to me photographing elderly couples as well.’

The photographer admits that taking photos was a hobby at first but as she shared them on social media, friends encouraged her to take it up as a career.
She now has her own photography business called But Natural photography, where she uses natural light, and encourages her students to as well – for the best photos.
‘Over these years I started photographing people and the stories of their lives for my own personal creative journey,’ she said.
talking about the photos of the couples she said: ‘The love, the bond that these couples share is indescribable. I almost never ever have to pose them. The love, the way they hold each other’s hands, the way they kiss, it is all so real. ‘
