Majestic in their wildness, animals once lived a balanced existence as part of nature. Together we share the air that we breathe, and the earth on which we live. We are all bound by the same laws of nature.
All inter species relationships, all unspoken communication, show how bound together we all are.
Why is it that we are thrilled and honored encountering an animal in the wild, and deeply saddened when we see an animal that has been somehow restrained or threatened by humanity?
The lack of respect with which we often treat animals mirrors our alienation from our own interdependence with nature and the earth. We are all intricately intertwined together.
Each animal in this series is disconnected from it's natural habitat. It has been restrained, captured or killed.
Each face has something to tell us if we look closely enough.
