With the notable exceptions of lions, apes and monkeys are my favorite animals to photograph. Their similarity to us humans and the wide variety of facial expressions they are capable of allowing for an anthropomorphization like no other group of animals. For photographers, this is a wonderful storytelling opportunity, and for the viewers, it is a vibrant and fascinating experience to come up with their own stories as they look at the photos.
Recently, I finished a whole series of animal photographs with some new images of apes and monkeys among them. In this post, I’d like to share them with you.
