I am ecstatic to share the news that I will be publishing my Elderly Animals book with the University of Chicago Press!  For many years, I've admired the books that U of C has produced (including, recently, Rachel Sussman's "The Oldest Living Things in the World" and numerous animal-studies titles like Barbara King's "How Animals Grieve"). I respect the Press' ability to create high-quality books that are both critically acclaimed and embraced by wide audiences.

Although we have been working together only a short time, I already adore my editor, Christie Henry. Our discussions about the book have been so stimulating! Her questions and suggestions have been incredibly thoughtful and insightful. I feel very fortunate to be working with her on my first book.

I flew to Chicago recently to meet Christie and the rest of the team that will be working with on my book. Everyone I met with was incredibly sharp, savvy and passionate about books. (I was struck by the fact that most of the staff has been at the Press for over 15 years. It's clear that they love what they do and that is a beautiful thing to see.)

I am very grateful to my agent Elizabeth Kaplan for shepherding me through the daunting process of finding a publisher. Her guidance, support and encouragement was truly invaluable. Elizabeth understood and respected my vision for this book and worked very hard to find the perfect home for it.

There is still much work to be done before the book is published. We are targeting a Spring 2018 release. I will share more details about the book as its release date draws closer.

In the meantime, though, I want to thank you all for your support and friendship. Many of you have cheered me on through the earliest stages of my career. Your kind words and likes here have kept me going, especially during the more challenging days in this project. I celebrate this important milestone with each of you.

I am very excited to share with you my new web site (http://www.isaleshko.com) that was built by the fabulously talented Dalton Rooney of Raygun (http://madebyraygun.com/). Many of you know Dalton's beautiful photography -- and if you don't, you should definitely rectify that: http://daltonrooney.com/.

Dalton is also a WordPress maven and pulled together this site in under a week and on extremely short notice. I highly re...commend him if you are looking for a web site developer.

Warm thanks also goes to my good friend +James Goncalves who provided valuable design suggestions and feedback for the web site. James designed my current post cards and my Thrills & Chills catalog. I am so grateful to him for his support for my work.

I hope you all like the new web site. Check it out and tell me what you think. :-)

Thrilled that my work is featured on the NY Times Well blog today.
Isa Leshko, a fine art photographer, set out to capture glimpses of animals in their twilight years -- a therapeutic project inspired by caring for her mother with Alzheimer's disease.

I was blown away by this multimedia presentation of Lori Waselchuk's "Grace Before Dying" project that was produced by Daylight Mag. Very moving and highly recommended.

Painting With Light: Beautiful photos by Harold Ross on Lens
"It’s a very powerful technique in that it allows me to get a great deal of shape and texture and dimensionality. I really think of it as sculpting with light, because I use it in a way to increase shape and dimension. I light from certain angles, and that lighting direction is what creates that shape. It’s really powerful. One of the big advantages is that the thing that you’re photographing is completely open and accessible. You’re just sort of dancing around it with a little handheld light source." http://nyti.ms/yIpOCh
The control of light is the core of the photographer Harold Ross's work. Mr. Ross, who has been "painting with light" for more than 20 years, pairs undeniably real scenes with the artificiality of lig...

As a follow-up to the article on battery recycling, check out Pieter Hugo's Permanent Error project & recently released book. Although these images were taken in Africa & not Mexico, they provide searing evidence of the environmental impact of the electronics we rely upon daily.

Jason Ludwig is by far the best car salesperson I have ever dealt with. He was extremely helpful and knowledgeable. I am a vegan so I was looking for a leather-free car, which is surprisingly not easy, particularly given the other features I had wanted in my car. Jason worked with me on finding the perfect fit for my needs. He also is a very honest and upfront salesman. I appreciated that he was helpful without being pushy.
