I started as an animal photographer, and it remains a passion of mine.
Man is an animal, though we too often tend to forget it. We are no more than an evolved specie. All animals are our brothers and our friends. We all depend upon each other and must respect life around us. The animal side in our nature can be positive, or else terribly destructive. We must accept it, act upon it, for man now commands such power taht he is indeed responsible for other species as well as the fate of the whole planet.
In the end, to my mind, photographing people or animals amounts to the same thing.
