I enjoy zoo photography, and it gives me an opportunity to show animals in ways that you may not have thought of them before. From childhood we're trained to think of animals in terms of their silhouettes, but in reality they're rich sources both of behavior and of detail. My Animal Geometries series aims to highlight some of that detail, isolating parts of animals so they may be considered independently. Also featured here are some animal portraits, and my new series Photos from the Primate Resettlement Agency, in which I depict apes and monkeys with the styles of depression-era photography.
My series In Negative Space, formerly here, uses digital postprocessing to create an image which combines photography with the compositional aesthetic of pencil drawing. I was never thoroughly satisfied with that series as photographs, and have found that they work better as screen prints, so I'm in the process of changing media for that series. Look for updates soon.
Ten percent of all sales of animal photos goes back to the zoos at which they were created.
