Nancy Le Vine is a photographer of older dogs from New York, and she believes that old dogs should be respected for their dignity, wisdom and unconditional love . Nancy travels to the States, photographs old dogs and shares her stories with the world …
It all started when two dogs of Nancy, Lulu and Maxi, died back in 2006. As a photographer, she could not think of a better way to pay tribute to her departed domestic pets, then to take a camera and start photographing old dogs all over the country.
To understand Nancy’s special relationship with older dogs, just read how she writes about photographing one of her dogs: “She was my best friend. Very, very old soul. She never needed a leash … It was she who pushed me to the fact that I began to look deeper into my dogs dogs eyes … ”
“I really miss her, despite the fact that a lot of time has passed. She always stayed with me. ” Although many of Nancy’s favorite dogs have already left, the memory of them (and stunning photos) speaks of the deep trail they left in the life of their mistress.
