Created in Los Angeles, Senior Love Triangle documents three elderly people in a romantic conflict.
Jeanie, 81, and Adina, 90, share William, 84, as a partner and companion, often spending time together.
In his late 70s, Will started a relationship with Adina. Then Will moved to another retirement home where he fell in love with Jeanie. Since Will didn’t want to choose between Jeanie and Adina, they formed a trio.
While contradicting socio-cultural norms about the elderly, the link between Jeanie, Will and Adina also reveals ageless needs, anxieties and contradictions.
The famous documentary photographer Isadora Kosofsky met Jeanie, Will and Adina when she was 17 years old. She photographs their moments of adventure, desire and loneliness with empathy, and has done so for years.
Senior Love Triangle is considered a revolutionary visual work on intimacy and aging, questioning the universal nature of love and monogamy.
