Old turkey

Photographer Isa Leshko is traveling to sanctuaries across the country to photograph animals that are elderly or at the end stage of their lives. "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."
