Incredible Black-And-White Photos Of Elderly Animals Will Break Your Heart
Photographer Isa Leshko has created a photography series titled “Elderly Animals,” illuminating animals that don’t often make it to the aww-inducing Buzzfeed lists. Yet Leshko’s project bears a heartbreaking message.
Leshko began photographing elderly animals after her own mother was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease. The sudden proximity to illness inspired Leshko to confront her own mortality and shed light on other creatures entering the final stages of their lives in the process.
