John Berger wrote, "Everywhere animals disappear. The zoo in which people go to meet animals, observe them, to see them, is, in fact, a monument to the impossibility of such encounters." These images are an aesthetic response to the similarities between humans and animals which have been explored through the medium of photography. The viewer is influenced to recognize the emotions, beliefs, assumptions, and thoughts we might share on an anthropomorphic level. With so many animals disappearing in the world today, sharing these attributes and seeing the personality, dignity, and beauty of these magnificent creatures reminds us why is it so crucial to protect them.
