American Photographer Katy Grannan specializes in unique portraiture that seems to really connect with the subject's personality. Her untitled photo series features older individuals shot over the past three years in Los Angeles and San Francisco.

Katu Grannan uses a white stucco wall as her backdrop to emphasize her subjects and the sunny California sun really puts them on the spotlight. The subjects that Katy Grannan shoots are completely anonymous and they often pass by her with barely any notice.

What's interesting about these Katy Grannan shots is that none of the people within these images are looking at the camera directly. There are very intricate details in every picture and almost every emotion and feeling of the subjects are captured within this series. Stats for Eerie Elderly Photographs Trending: Older & Average
