The Animal Kingdom: A Collection of Portraits is my first monograph published by Rizzoli New York and designed by Pentagram. The book itself is a series of over 150 portraits of animals in studio, all photographed in a singular, timeless aesthetic. It is my perspective and portrayal of the animal kingdom. As a portrait photographer, my intention is for these animal portraits to speak to the viewer. What they say depends on the conscious and subconscious feeling one embodies at the time.
