Beautiful and touching
I find it interesting that there are still photographers, even young ones, that still use film. These B/W images are very arresting!
Can somebody shed some light about the equipment being used?
It’s not the equipment. It’s the photographer. :)
Its a Hasselblad… looks like a c/m model with metered prism?
I still shoot film too… Hasseys are great :)
The sadness in some of the animals eyes is touching.
You are missing the point, I didn’t imply that the camera made the picture, there is a pleasure in seeing outdated gear put to good use, some of us would have never seen this kind of camera before.
Well captured images. I like the b/w good choice for the shoot.
As Humans, we outlive many of our beloved Animal friends, these brought back some warm memories. If, indeed, that is the job of a photographer…well done!
You succeeded brilliantly in capturing the personalities and the realities while maintaining dignity. I also appreciate your concern for the caregivers and the gift you gave them. Thank you.
Brilliantly done… Video brought tears to my eyes…
Its nice to know some domesticated animals escape being treated as commodities by humans. Killed, skinned, eaten and other parts used.
I recently had developed several rolls of film that were shot a few years ago. Some of the pictures had some of our elderly beagles while they were still. There’s one picture of Trucker where he was about 16 years old.
Holy shit. This ripped my heart out.
Thank you Isa, this was so beautiful, your work outstanding, I cried.
very touching animal pictures, even my cat liked them.
