For nearly a decade, Isa Leshko has visited farm animal sanctuaries across America to create photographic portraits of geriatric animals. Beginning this series shortly after caring for her mother who had Alzheimer’s disease, the experience had a profound effect on the artist. Leshko’s images have been published in The Atlantic, The Boston Globe, The Guardian, and The New York Times, among others. In May 2019, the University of Chicago Press published her first monograph, Allowed to Grow Old: Portraits of Elderly Rescued Farm Animals, a signed copy of which is included in this lot.
