If you own a pet, guess you have had a countless pictures of them on your cell phone or computer. Alike kids, pets are constantly worth the photos, even if sometimes they are mischievous. But quantity is not always the same as quality. Often it is advisable to have a small collection of amazing pet photos that are artistically captured the true colors of fur friends. Photographers have gone beyond smartphone cameras to raise the topic with specialized equipment and above all with a scale up sense of aesthetic eyes. Along with creative thinking, the images of these animals are remarkable.

Photographer Robert Bahou is a maverick when he decided to take a deep look at the souls of the animals beyond “cute” in some of other pet photos. He was interested in what was inside the fur and captured the honest gaze of living things in a series called Animal Soul. We was working hard throughout 2014 to successfully accomplish a photographic collection about animal’s inner world.
Animal Soul is a carefully curated collection of intimate and personal portraits of animals that he can think of. The main reason is that he believe whether an animal doesn’t understand what a camera is. When facing with the camera, they are just being themselves and don’t try to purposely pose like human for the best shot or hide something. What remains is a really honest moment between them and the camera.
“I’ve avoided all distraction by limiting the photographs to medium shots with a black background and I have purposely avoided humor as a selling point.” he explained.
“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.”
