Perfect Imperfection: Photographer Documents The Beauty Of Animals With Disabilities

ADVERTISEMENT

From dogs with three legs to cats born without eyes, Perfect Imperfection celebrates the intrinsic beauty of adorable animals who have overcome adversity and adapted to a physical impairment.

Photographed with care and sensitivity by leading Australian animal photography professional, Alex Cearns of Houndstooth Studio, each image leads with the beauty of the animal subject, making their physical issue almost a subtle afterthought.

Cearns says “One of my most passionate aims taking these animal portraits is to capture the adorable subtleties that make all creatures precious and unique. I love every beautiful animal I have the privilege of photographing, but those perceived as “different” hold a special place in my heart. These are the creatures who have lost a leg, been born without eyes, or are still showing the scars of former abuse. Most animals with “afflictions” don’t dwell on them. They adapt to their bodies without complaint and they survive with determination. These unusual animals push on, always, wanting to be included and involved in everything as much as they can, and as much as an able-bodied pet does.”
