“Until one has loved an animal, a part of one’s soul remains unawakened.” ― Anatole France

Wildlife. One of photography’s favorite subjects. From the pets we share a home with, to the animals in zoos and those that still run wild, animals have been occupying a place in our picture frames — and our hearts — since images could be captured on film. They can be notoriously difficult to photograph, but when we get a good picture, especially one that showcases their depth, beauty, and humor, the result is memorable and powerful. Here we’ve curated a series of photos that feature perhaps our most beloved subject: animals.
