Henry Horenstein’s series Animalia, made between 1995 and 2001, is a collection of evocative images of aquatic and terrestrial creatures photographed primarily in zoos and aquariums. Horenstein preferred this environment where he was able to isolate and abstract his subject matter due to ideal viewing conditions and consistently available subjects. His goal with this project was not to simply document the animals; rather, he wanted to look closer and capture the more subtle beauty, oddness and mystery of each creature.
