Ever heard stories from your parents or grandparents about how they grew up? They would be outdoors all the time; riding horses, playing hide and seek in the woods or helping out on the nearby farm. They would spend entire days outside, surrounded by animals and nature, no matter the season —fearless, caring, connected to everything around them.
Connect is a photographic project designed to help people reconnect with animals. I have captured animals’ various emotions, states of minds, and how they communicate through my photography. Although animals are very different from humans, we are so alike when expressing our feelings and state of minds. Unlike humans, animals do not hide how they feel. When you learn not just to look at animals but seeing them, you will quickly find out how animals are feeling and you will find that connection so many of us crave in today’s modern world.
