The Elderly Women Who Guard The Art Gallery (Суровые смотрительницы на страже российских музеев)
In most Russian state museums, the guardians are retired women women work as the guardians. They do not have to wear a uniform. In many cases, these elderly women appreciate art and have sufficient knowledge to explain the displayed art pieces. Inspired by this, a photographer, Andy Freeberg, initiated a photographic project of these elderly women entitled "Guardians of Russian Art Museums".
