Photographer Isa Leshko had captured these moving photographs of animals who are at the end stage of their lives using film. Her ongoing series taps your thoughts on what it means to be mortal. Pictures after the jump...
Pets will always have a place in our hearts, especially when they’ve been with us for years. Do you still remember your first pet? Through them, we learned how to deal with some of the most important things in life like caring and being responsible, even coping with death or loss of something important. Farm animals on the other hand, are a different story. Some people treat them as loyal friends, some don’t even get to live their natural life span because of abuse. It’s almost lucky to see a farm animal who’s been with their owners for a long time.
Isa Leshko has been traveling to sanctuaries across America to photograph elderly animals. Most of which have served as loyal friends and companions. Her ongoing series explores the concept of mortality and the results are emotive photographs that give us a different perspective towards these domesticated animals.
