Many of us are guilty of holding an unfair stereotype – that, once we grow old, our best days are behind us and that we can no longer fully realize our dreams. As photographer Vladimir Yakovlev has discovered, however, that's just not true. His Age Of Happiness photo project introduces us to people who, at 70, 80 or even 100 years of age, are still following their dreams and trying new things.

If you know such a person, feel free to add their photo to this list!
