If you’re lucky enough to be able to spend time with your grandma—past or present—you would probably agree that they’re pretty special. Most grandmothers are full of love, kindness, wisdom, and plenty of fun! Japanese photographer YASUTO shows his admiration for his grandma by capturing her sweet and playful personality in a series of heartwarming photographs.
YASUTO shared the beautiful series on Twitter, where he explains his reason for the project. He reveals that he regrets not photographing his grandfather before he died, so he wanted to capture his grandmother at this point in her life. From posing among pastel-hued hydrangeas to sitting under golden autumn trees, the collection of images were taken throughout the year and capture Japan’s famous colorful seasons.
Not only do YASUTO’s images immortalize his grandma’s gentle nature, but they also show the adorable bond between her and her dog. Her loyal Shiba Inu is captured sitting by her side, as she looks at him with pure glee. The sweet pair are shown happily relaxing in Japan’s stunning forests and parks, and they sometimes look as though they’re deep in conversation. YASUTO’s series celebrates the beauty of old age and how joyful life can be.
