Face Of The Day

Olddogs

Nancy LeVine photographs aging dogs across America. Kerri MacDonald interviews the artist:

Ms. Levine doesn’t want to see her project as being about death; it is about the dignity of age and, perhaps more than anything else, the luxury of aging without human concerns. “The dog lives in the present,” Ms. Levine said. “We don’t. Our body is fragile. We’re thinking about the past and what we could have done differently; we’re thinking about the future and what is going to happen to us.”
