The most appreciated photography project on all of Behance this week is also probably the most touching portrait project you’ve seen in a while. A simple series of portraits, the project embarked to send one simple message: smiles don’t get old.

Created by Russian photographer Ilya Nodia and retoucher Irina Muravyova, the duo was asked by Senior Group to go around to several nursing homes and capture a “very touching and beautiful project about the smile.”

“We visited several nursing homes, where for a few hours turned their cozy living in a mobile studio,” they explain. “As you know, the usual schedule was completely disrupted excitement and preparation for our meeting […] elderly ladies were choosing outfits and powdering cheeks, and great grandfathers teased their beards and corrected medals. [It was] a wonderful experience and a great atmosphere created by smiles that never grow old.”

Scroll down to see all ten, touching portraits they walked away with:
