“She is my absolute muse, in photography and in life,” says photographer Adelaide Ivánova of her 93-year-old grandmother, also named Adelaide. Her ongoing project Adelaide chronicles the life of the matriarch, deconstructing stereotypes surrounding old age by presenting a vibrant and complex vision of elderliness. As the older Adelaide navigates her twilight years, the younger becomes her shadow, giving voice to the joys and frustrations of her days.
