Why do I photograph animals? Why should I ever crawl out from under the covers and head to the freezing outdoors, hours before the sun even thinks about warming my back? Why should we care? Good questions. I believe that we have lost connection somewhere. We have lost empathy with the environment and all those cousins who share this unique little planet with us. It has become 'them and us'; we are no longer a part of their world, and they are not part of ours. We do, however, share so much with them, not only the air we breathe and the water we drink, but the ever-present struggle to survive in a changing, confusing and challenging world. We understand their needs, we know their desires, we share their aspirations - we just need to feel our connection. I believe that we all possess an incredibly strong affinity to wildlife, but our daily lives and stresses in our detached, concrete world has interrupted the flow between us and weakened our bonds with nature. I believe that photography has the power to rebuild our connections to our forgotten relatives, and allow empathy to replace the apathy that has crept between us in recent times. So please, take a closer look at my photos and take some time to really see the subject. You have more in common than you may think...
