Isa Leshko: Elderly Animals (10 photos)

Photographer Isa Leshko is traveling to sanctuaries across the country to photograph animals that are elderly or at the end stage of their lives. “I began the series as a means of exploring my feelings about my mother’s decline due to Alzheimer’s Disease,” she says. “As I’ve worked on this project, though, I’ve come to realize that these images are a testament to survival and endurance. And they raise questions about what it means to be elderly.”

Currently based in Houston, TX, Leshko is relocating to Philadelphia, PA in May 2011. Her work is represented by the Corden|Potts Gallery in San Francisco, CA, the John Cleary Gallery in Houston, TX and the Richard Levy Gallery in Albuquerque, NM.

  1. It was so great to see an 11 year old Irish Wolfhound. My guy Ram, only made it to 5 years because of back problems and knowing they are short lived I began mourning him from the day we brought him home and trying to celebrate each day he was with us.
    He was wise and majestic and loving and we miss him terribly, even the entire staff at the vet’s office cried when we had to put him down. He is buried here on the ranch, and we miss him every day.
