Yellow and Black Photography Quote (1).p

“It has been said that “the eyes are the windows to the soul,” and I have found this to be true. Not only in people, but also in animals – and most especially in the great apes.”

The series “Almost Human” explores the eyes and expressions of these magnificent creatures, looking for the souls in our most closely-related counterparts. Chimpanzees, gorillas, and orangutans are so much like us that if you spend a little time with them, you can almost tell what they are feeling. Some are young and playful, some are old and wise, and some are shy and do not want to be bothered. They all have very different personalities and spirits.
