Flavorwire » Gorgeous Photographs of Elderly Animals.

The beauty found in the  newness of life  is  wrapped up in the perfection,  innocence and  helplessness of being.   The beauty found in  middle age is the  knowledge that the past can be transformed into meaningful experiences that serve to guide one into Maturity.    The beauty found in old age is the wisdom acquired from a lifetime of experiences and the coming to terms with one’s own mortality. Beauty is always upon us.  It never departs, although I am sure some would argue otherwise. It is constantly changing and revealing itself in new ways and by new means. Beauty moves inward reaching further and further into the depths of our being.  Most recognize “true” beauty here.  It radiates outwardly embracing all that life has offered.  Beauty is bitter-sweet just as life.  It ebbs and flows but it always remains.

These  photographs of elderly animals by Houston based artist Isa Keshko are testament that beauty clearly resides within and through all of life in some form no matter what.   Leshko explains her motives for taking these images, “I  began the series as a means of exploring my feelings about my mother’s decline due to Alzheimer’s Disease… 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.”
