Japanese Akiko Yamaguchi works as a documentary photographer under the pseudonym DuPont. In recent years, she has often filmed her grandfather Gigi in the company of a red cat named Kinako. These unremarkable at first glance frames are actually filled with piercing meaning.
Akiko's grandfather, a participant in World War II, did not retire until a very old age and continued to work in production. But in 2009, he began to have serious health problems, and he ended up in the hospital for several weeks. As a result, the disease receded, but Gigi could no longer work. By that time he had already become a widower. Life has lost all meaning for Grandfather. He was gloomy and unsociable.
Then Akiko decided to give him a kitten so that Gigi would have someone to take care of. But she did not even dream of such a transformation of her grandfather. Gigi and Kinako have become inseparable friends. 94-year-old man has learned to smile again…
Gigi and Kinako almost always sleep together.
Sometimes even in the same position.
Usually the cat wakes up earlier.
And guards the peace of a friend.
When Gigi gets up, it's time for breakfast.
This is a typical Japanese menu.
But it's not so easy to catch the moment to take a picture of what Kinako eats: he eats all the treats instantly.
After breakfast, everyone goes about their business.
Later in the evening, Grandpa starts his favorite activity - making newspaper clippings.
Four-legged helps as much as possible…
...in the hope that he will get something delicious.
However, Kinako is not too zealous.
It's not enough for a long time.
The cat is always somewhere nearby.
Gigi's granddaughter says that when she looks at this couple, her soul gets warmer.
