When Animals Meet
For most of us wild animals are part of the natural world where we no longer dwell. They are curiosities that we visit.
This series explores what happens to them and to us when we meet in the few arenas open to us today. From Franklin Park Zoo to the Mystic Aquarium and to the Galapagos, I photograph moments when I see engagement, meetings when the animals are as curious and aware as the humans. Maybe even more important are those occasions when both parties mirror each other, reminding us that we are not so different after all.
