60 and with pompons by Todd Antony


It’s been some time since we declared we wanted to be like Anna Sello Russo at 50 and like Iris Apfel at 90; the vacuum between these two ages made us panic, so we had to look for another reference in that age range. This time we were looking for something simpler, more natural and less shining, but it couldn’t be since “Sun City Poms”, a cheerleaders group from Arizona, whose wrinkles are more flexible than you, fascinated us. These grannies practice choreographies which could well be seen at high schools, and they dress up like fifteen-years-old (something we would also do if we had those legs!). To get older surrounded by pompons and ra-ra-ras chants seems a total La Monda plan to us. Thanks to photographer Todd Antony, who, fascinated by them (how couldn’t he?) made this reportage to show the world humor has no age limit. LIKE THIS, YES.
