From Claire O’Neill’s post on NPR’s “The Picture Show”:
When Isa Leshko found out her mother had Alzheimer’s, she made a decision not to photograph her. But after a year, Leshko wanted to process her emotions in the way she knows best: through photographs.
“I encountered a blind elderly horse that was living on a relative’s property,” Leshko explains in a statement. “I was mesmerized by this animal and spent the afternoon photographing him. … I realized I had found a project that would enable me to sift through my feelings around my mother’s illness.”
