The life of a Japanese grandmother and her cat

Japanese photographer Miyoko Ihara has been documenting the life of her grandmother, Misao, for 13 years now. She started photographing the series as a means of celebrating and capturing the life of a woman who inspired her.

8 years ago Misao took in a stray cat with different coloured eyes and called him Fukumaru. Friendship between the two blossomed and they are now inseparable, sharing their daily life. ”Partly because they are both hard of hearing, my grandmother and Fukumaru are always looking into each other’s eyes. They’re really close,” said Ihara.

The beautiful images have since been published in a book which is available here.
