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.

They’re really close,” said Ihara.
