My name is Abhi, and through the Their Lives project, I attempt to document my perspectives of the nonhuman animals I interact with. Whether it’s a free-living animal or someone held captive by humans, they have such a wide range of emotions and experiences that it is impossible to capture their true selves through photography alone. However, I think it is important for us to tell their stories the best we can.
Although it will be focused on nonhuman animals, Their Lives will occasionally convey the stories of humans, especially those struggling to have their voices heard.
I will not try to make this sound a grand undertaking to change the world, but if it gets even one person to look at others a little differently – with a bit more respect and compassion – I’ll take it.
