Isa Leshko: Elderly Animals

Preview

I am traveling to sanctuaries across the country to photograph animals that are elderly or at the end stage of their lives. I began this series shortly after I had spent a year caring for my mother who has Alzheimer’s disease. When my mother got ill, I made a conscious decision to not photograph her. But caring for her had a profound impact on me and I knew the experience would influence my photography. Shortly after I had returned home, I encountered a blind elderly horse that was living on a relative’s property. I was mesmerized by this animal and spent the afternoon photographing him. After reviewing my film, I realized I had found a project that would enable me to sift through my feelings around my mother’s illness.
