From the interview with Isa Leshko for the Beyond the Book podcast:

The pastoral setting of Allowed to Grow Old: Portraits of Elderly Animals from Farm Sanctuaries comes in opposition to the harsh conditions where Isa Leshko’s subjects earlier had found themselves. Abe the goat, Babs the donkey, and Teresa the pig all suffered abuse and neglect before they were rescued and given the chance to live out their lives unmolested. For the photographer, getting their pictures meant getting to know them at ground level, and when she got back up, she discovered she had a book.
