I lived with my 83-year-old grandmother for the year following the death of my grandfather—her husband of 63 years. It was a deeply meaningful and challenging experience for me to witness her grief and loneliness as I was struggling with my own loss. During this time, we became open with one another in ways that we had never been before. After a year, in an attempt to synthesize and understand this experience, I began to photograph her and her home. This evolved into a series of portraits documenting my grandmother’s daily life, beauty routines, and social activities. Together, these portraits offer intimate views of both her private emotional landscape and her public persona - Rachel McClain
