Isadora Kosofsky is a Los Angeles – based documentary photographer, currently residing in New York City. She began her photographic career, approximately four years ago when she was in her teens. She has won several awards and distinctions.
Her focus in this long-term project, entitled “The Three”, depicts the loneliness of aging lives and the relationships of the elderly. Here she documents a unique connection of three people: Jeanie, 82, Will, 84, and Adelina, 90, who meet each morning at a local senior-care facility. They spend their day together. Relying on each other as a shield against loneliness, illness and the fear of aging, these three people have formed a bond of love. This is a different kind of love and interdependence.
Kosofsky gained an appreciation of the elderly with the death of her grandmother. Although still quite young, Isadora Kosofsky is already a prize-winning photographer with a unique empathy for the aging.
