A renowned London-based photographer Tim Flach presents his work of seven years in an animal portraits book called More than Human“. By taking striking close-up shots of various wild animals, Tim attempts to demonstrate how close can animal gestures and poses get to those of the humans.

What looks like images of unselfconscious and spontaneous reactions of the beautiful animals, is actually a result of long research and observation done by the artist. Every animal responds differently to temperature changes, light, human presence, and even sounds – some of them would feel better with the music on, while the other would get intimidated by it.

The stunning pictures evoke an unexpected sense of intimacy and empathy even with the less cuddly animal models. Tim did everything to create individual studio photography settings for all of them, and his beautiful photos prove that all the efforts paid off.
