As a happy cat owner for years, I can attest that life with a furry friend is hardly boring and a little bit more bearable. When I came across a photo story and book by Miyoko Ihara about her grandmother Misao and her cat Fukumaru, I couldn’t help but say “awwww!”
Since 2002, Miyoko Ihara has been taking photos of her 88-year-old grandmother Misao, documenting her daily life and activities. Years later, her grandmother found a white cat with bi-colored eyes and called him Fukumaru. They have been inseparable ever since, and Miyoko’s day-to-day snapshots of the elderly lady and her steadfast feline companion prove the special bond between them.
Inspired by the seventies, this young artist makes it seem that such an epoch lives forever in her photographs, perfectly maintaining the spirit of the time which was characterized by a multitude of colours, contrasts and famous disco moves.
