“The project started by chance back in 2008. I was visiting the local zoo, which I hadn’t been to in ages, and started taking pictures of the captive animals, just like everyone else was doing. My attention kept being drawn to their eyes, which, to me, seemed very sad, and I ended focusing my camera on them. I was intrigued by whether my impressions would be apparent to other people in the images. I wondered if that popular old saying, referring to humans, that goes the eyes are the windows to the soul could hold true for animals as well.”
in the film “garden state,” the first song that plays is “don’t panic” by coldplay. in the book “the hitchhiker’s guide to the galaxy,” by douglas adams, the literal guide to the galaxy has the phrase “don’t panic” written in large, friendly letters on the cover. in reality, i have a bit of an anxiety problem. done in black ink, times new roman font, above my inner right elbow (the lines are cleaner and very crisp in person, i promise).
