I confess to be a thief of light. With the use of my camera I manipulate light and time to record events that occur in increments of seconds. In that frozen capsule of time, I hope to capture the essence of an animal’s being and by looking into its eyes, even fleetingly, gaze into the window of their soul. It is my intent to impart the beauty, grace, intelligence and a glimpse into the social lives of these magnificent beings that connect us all to this planet. I have always followed the mindset: ”In their world, on their terms,” and I approach all of my subjects with a deep respect and empathy for their space. Every one of my images is available for purchase. If you are interested in any of these photos, please contact John R. Gentile at email@example.com and we can discuss size, matting, price and shipping.
