Photographer Isa Leshko recently traveled around the US to photograph animals in their final stages of life.
“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.”
The photos say everything.
