More Than Human: Photo Series by Tim Flach

They are far removed from wildlife photograph’s documentary images of animals observed in their natural habitat. In fact, the treatment accorded to these particular creatures is not dissimilar from the close encounters with individuals that are the stuff of human portraiture.”
