Even when lacking in pigment, animals radiate beauty, strength, and elegance. These achromatic portraits focus on the faces of wildlife and remove the creatures from context. Stripped of their hues, the animals remain bare and raw before the viewer. Their values, textures, and patterns contrast against the deep black of the background as the stark, white outlines highlight their various forms and shapes. Each portrait boldly embodies the presence of the species it portrays and delicately reveals the vulnerabilities of each individual animal.
