Incredibly amusing and very endearing, the photographs of elderly Tai Chi enthusiasts in Grainne Quinlan's 'White Crane Spread Wings' series draw attention to the various body contortions of the exercise.

Meant to be a low-key form of activity that can relax the body and balance the spirit, Tai Chi classes are the perfect amount of exercise of elderly people who can be spied participating in the sport in public parks and courtyards everywhere. Through these photographs, we get a peak at the quirky poses people put their bodies through, often freezing mid-air with their arms akimbo and their legs bent in strange and unlikely shapes.

Some of these older Tai Chi enthusiast really know how to bend and this odd photography series will certainly bring a smile to people's faces.
