Enchanting Photos Portray a Fantasyland of Children and Wild Animals

For Animal Visions, photographer Tom Chambers explores the uncanny bond between human and animal. Drawing on his childhood experiences on a family farm in Pennsylvania, he constructs an enchanting world wherein small children and great, gentle beasts revel together in wondrous imagination. Museums and villas shot in Italy and plush Virginian landscapes serve as the sumptuous backdrops for these hallucinogenic narratives, where the animals, originally photographed in zoos around Washington DC and Virginia, are composited. Each component, captured on film, is meticulously melded together digitally, creating a resplendent tactile richness.

WWF Launches Compelling Campaign to Stop Crimes Against Wildlife

Around the globe, tigers, rhinos, elephants, and gorillas are running out of time and facing extinction. In recent years, dangerous and illegal poaching networks have expanded to the level of drugs and arms syndicates, creating a black market industry that brings in approximately $10 billion annually.

It Looks Like an Oil Spill but It’s Actually a Huge School of Anchovy

At first glance it may look like an oil spill but it’s actually a massive aggregation of anchovy near Scripps Pier at the Scripps Institution of Oceanography, UC San Diego in La Jolla, California. The gathering occurred on 8 July 2014 and the footage was taken by Scripps staff and underwater by Scripps graduate students Julia Fiedler, Sean Crosby and Bonnie Ludka.
