I have not seen photos of animals that I could relate to more than those done by British photographer Tim Flach who recently published a book entitled "An Evolving View of Animals."
“How we treat animals is often dependent on how they display characteristics we think are human," said Flach in a New York Times interview.
Flach portrays animals and other creatures as endearing and dignified instead of repulsive and frightening; amusing and friendly instead of wild and fierce. I could almost see myself seeing them on the street and greeting them "Aloha."
In a continuing observation of Earth Day, I've posted below some of Flach's photos I found on Google.com. Enjoy the portraits of our fellow passengers on Ship Earth.
I hope that finding commonalities with the creatures helps us better accept, respect and love them.
Which are your favorites?
