After spending some time in the retirement town of Sun City, Arizona, London-based photographer Todd Antony was immediately taken by the active lifestyles of it’s inhabitants. With a population just under 40,000, Antony was most intrigued by the city’s cheerleading squad, the Sun City Poms. Formed in 1979, this group of senior cheerleaders redefine what it means to live life to the fullest at any age. When asked to be photographed by Antony, the ladies were more than happy to strike their best poses and most dazzling smiles. In a society where the youth of today fight to be older, these women show just how important it is to embrace your youth for as long as possible.
