The plain truth is when we save species, we’re actually saving ourselves.

For many of Earth’s creatures, time is running out. Half of the world’s plant and animal species will soon be threatened with extinction. The Photo Ark is a collection of photographs that documents the worlds species that we have a chance of losing. It is a visual connection between the animals and people who can help protect them. By isolating animals on black and white backgrounds, we can look them directly in the eye and quickly see that these creatures contain beauty, grace and intelligence.Perhaps some even hold the key to our very salvation.
