Wilson works in cooperation with zoos and wildlife sanctuaries who bring the animals into a studio, where he photographs them against a black background. This makes the animals appear grounded and three-dimensional—magnificent, approachable, yet inherently mysterious. He describes the situation as a kind of “controlled chaos,” but in the end it allows him to create images that show each animal as an individual being with its own personality and dignity. There is no anthropomorphism here but rather a wise and respectful approach to these creatures with whom we share the Earth. As he writes in his introduction: “I hope this body of work can stand as worthy testament to these vanishing faces, a bridge of sorts, to remind us that we are not alone, we are not separate; we are part of a profoundly interconnected diversity of life. In each animal’s gaze we see a part of ourselves and catch a fleeting glimpse of another world, a world we once fully inhabited.”
