Yellow and Black Photography Quote (1).p

“I look for the souls in our most closely-related counterparts – the great apes.”

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 - most especially in the great apes.

My series “Almost Human” explores the es and expressions of these magnificent creatures.

I want to show the heart of these beautiful animals.

I look for the souls in our most closely related counterparts.

I hope more people can find a deeper understanding and affection for them.

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.

I’d love to see a better world for man and apes alike.

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.

I want to show the heart of these beautiful animals so more people can find a deeper understanding and affection for them.

We can learn more about the conservation efforts in place to help these great apes.

I hope more people can find a deeper understanding and affection for the great apes.
