The thematics of the artwork

“What counts, for me, is creating intimacy with animals. Bringing down the barriers that separate us from them. So as to finally restore their dignity.” PEDRO JARQUE KREBS

About the artwork

By immortalising wild animals in their natural habitat and then working on the lighting in postproduction to display them against a neutral backdrop, Pedro Jarque Krebs aims to help break down the barrier that we have built up over the centuries concerning our relationship with the animal kingdom. The darkness of the backdrop and the play of light and shade allow the photographer to create the atmosphere necessary to take an emotional approach to them. Our contemplation of animals has always represented a means of reflecting on the origins of humanity.

Anecdote

Pedro Jarque Krebs, a multi-award-winning wildlife photographer, works on his subjects only in nature reserves. It is only Iater in his studio that he reworks his portraits against a black background, playing on light and shade. In this way, the intimacy with the animal emerges and the relationship becomes closer. Through his art, Pedro Jarque Krebs hopes to raise awareness among the widest possible audience regarding the urgent need to save endangered or captive wild animals.
