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.

This article is a tribute to the street and humanist photographer Sabine Weiss. Considered a living legend in street photography, she likes to photograph daily lives of people, trying to capture the emotions she recognizes around her. Weiss like to photograph people of all ages but she especially loves to take photos of children, masterfully immortalizing their spontaneous gestures and emotions. For this article, I was inspired by one of her rare sports photos of some children practicing judo. Do you want to know more about this great artist? Well, read on!

In prime areas of New York and San Francisco, the phrase ‘rush hour’ is always on the menu. Drive up to Reno, and the same expression fizzles. Many roads are framed by mountains and shrubbery, a picture of calm in the city. But the night makes up for the day’s stilly mood. Casinos flaunt LED signs and marquees, a treat for urban photographers.

Jungle, home, haven. The same words may apply to both city and nature. Though different they are linked. The city takes after the colors of flowers and animals; people mold their neighborhoods after the shapes of nature. Other similarities are accidental: the fun bit.
