Photographer Isa Leshko has put a spin on the animal photos we’re all accustomed to seeing on the Internet. No cute and fluffy pups here, and definitely no cute-as-a-button kitties. Leshko wanted to capture the elderly animals of the world and has created a photography series titled Elderly Animals to showcase it.

Leshko began photographing elderly animals after her mother was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease, which made her ‘confront her own mortality’. From factory farm animals to family pets, this series of snaps really hits home hard and makes us all realize what it’s like to grow old. As if our creaky knees didn’t remind us enough!
