London-based photographer Tim Flach has made a career of documenting stunning wildlife imagery, from horses in the womb to jellyfish in the depths of the ocean, from the backs of adult primates to the backs of human babies. The New York Times published a selection of Flach's photos, which are characterized as a way of "catching one's imagination and introducing certain ideas through the context of a picture."
Most of Mr. Flach's intimate portraits of animals are intended to be a bit jarring in their simplicity - concentrating on the subtle details that impart a humanistic feel. He wants his images to engage people in debates about who we are and our relationships to animals, with the belief that "how we treat animals is often dependent on how they display characteristics we think are human."
