At just 19 years old, Los Angeles-based photographer Isadora Kosofsky has a remarkable ability to capture the emotionally complex experience of growing old. For her long-term documentary project The Three she joined in with the routines of Jeanie, 82, Will, 84 and Adina, 90 who meet every day near their senior-care facilities to spend their remaining days together in a three-way relationship.
This surprising love triangle, brought together to avoid the isolation of retirement, reminds us that the socio-cultural norms projected onto the elderly are as much a myth as any other stereotype. It’s a touching project, which perfectly captures a time in life which is about both loss and liberation. Beautiful.
