Photographer Robert Bahou is fascinated by animals. He has always wanted to capture what they’re really thinking about. So, he came up with this project that consists of capturing animals we are most familiar with so that we could really see what’s really on their minds. We often find ourselves pointing out cameras at cats and dogs, but do we really capture intimate moments?
The truth, we really don’t. We mostly tend to focus on their funny, cute moments rather than those intimate moments. So, Bahou tried to capture those moments in his project called Animal Soul. To avoid all distractions, he used a black background.
“I want people to look at animals in a way that they don’t normally do. I want to show the animals they’re so familiar with in a way they haven’t seen them before. By looking at my own photos, I often end up seeing them in a different way.” Bahou states.
Check out the pictures below to really look at the animals we cannot imagine our lives without.
