Farmed Animal Photography
Since 2001 I have been visiting farm animal sanctuaries to photograph the animals living there. Most of the images you see here were taken at Farm Sanctuary and Woodstock Farm Animal Sanctuary. Please consider making a tax-deductible donation for their efforts.
There is something special about farmed animals. They are teachers. Every time I look into the eyes of a calf or a goat or a pig I see someone who has experienced the world in a way different than I have. But within that understanding, there is also the understanding that they are unique. Embodied. Alive and conscious.
“To identify with others is to see something of yourself in them and to see something of them in yourself--even if the only thing you identify with is the desire to be free from suffering.”
