Looking into the eyes of an animal can feel eerily human. It’s hard to shake the feeling that those eyes betray a deeper consciousness and some kind of mutual recognition. Perhaps it is because of this that animals have captured our imaginations throughout history. From the beautiful sculpted cats of ancient Egypt right through to the plethora of Disney films that exist today, we have turned to art in an effort to capture the transfixing animal mind that is just out of our reach. Photography now brings us closer than ever – bodies mid-movement are frozen in time, and stunning macro shots reveal incredible detail invisible to the naked eye. Here we have curated a series of images from the Picfair catalogue that will provide you with a strikingly intimate glimpse into the alien mind of animals.
