Active in photography since 2011 I found myself most attracted to photographing animals. Never a big fan of zoos I started to visit some and came to the conclusion that in (most of) the zoos the animals are very well off nowadays. The world in itself isn’t a very great place for animals anymore where space and freedom for them disappears in a fast and tragic way.
With each visit and each picture I took I got more and more impressed by the animals and after a while I realised that I was trying to portray them almost as humans on portraits with emotion, funny expressions and all beauty and grace, captive animals have.
“The greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way its animals are treated.”
― Mahatma Gandhi
