Animalia

With this series, I aim to create quiet and personal pictures of animals which inhabit zoos and sanctuaries. To achieve this, I used the natural light and shadows available in their enclosures to isolate them from their surroundings. Through this process, I found that my portraits became imbued with an emotionality that illuminated the connection I felt with the animals as I photographed them. The essence of their psyche seemed to boil to the top, as if they were sitting for an intimate portrait.
